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.
