Use of a 3D Printed tracheal model plays a pivotal role in a 3 years-old patient surgical therapy. The tracheal model was used to plan an operation on the patient as he had a deformed airway. Dr Sarris, our Chief Scientific Advisor and his medical team succesfully operated the patient in IASO Children's hospital. 3D-printed models improve evaluation and decision-making process of difficult anatomy approaches, serve in simulation and planning of a potentially problematic intubation and can be a valuable tool in the management of the airway with anatomical malformations. Dr. Sarris and his great team in Iaso Children’s Hospital received the best abstract second place for their poster presentation in a prestigious congress organized in Boston with title “Principles of Pediatric Anesthesia and Critical Care”
