Abstract

The advancement of 3-Dimensional (3D) printing technology has made the design and production of items increasingly ubiquitous amongst the public. This technology is increasingly being used widely in various medical fields. With its increasing cost efficiency and accessibility, it is the author's perspective that 3D technology can improve accessibility to surgical procedures in low- and medium-income countries (LMIC) by providing proceduralists with the basic equipment required to perform routine operations.
