MetadataShow full item record
Three-dimensional (3D) printing in the domain of congenital heart disease (CHD) is still in its infancy. The aim of this editorial is to highlight the key findings of a recently published systematic review and meta-analysis on the accuracy and clinical value of 3D printed heart models (3DPHM). The analysis found that 3DPHM can be generated with high accuracy and the most reported application of 3DPHM is to facilitate pre-operative planning.
