Despite increasing evidence of their utility, 3D models have never been extensively tested so far in pediatric cardiac surgery planning. 3D models may offer advantages over traditional imaging examinations: 1) a deeper understanding of 3D anatomy in complex defects allowing visual and tactile inspection from any point of view, 2) the possibility to interact with a tangible replica of the real organs, 3) the surgical planning and simulation maneuvers on the printed and virtual model, and 4) interaction with anatomical structures thank to Virtual Reality technologies. The work aims to test and compare the accuracy and the incremental diagnostic value of 3D printed and virtual models in patients undergoing cardiac surgery for CHDs.
