3D models can be used for preoperative planning in case of complex tracheobronchial or laryngotracheal surgery or for teaching purpose for medical student or to train surgeons, residents and fellows. We can expect a widespread use of 3D printer technologies in thoracic surgery not only for tracheal surgery. In our opinion becoming familiar with these new technologies is important for the evolution of surgery.
