Anaïs Rameau, MD, and her research team develop a high-fidelity, open-source, low-cost 3D-printed simulator for injection laryngoplasty training

This work, published in the March issue of Laryngoscope, was explicitly made open-access, allowing anyone around the globe to download the model renderings and access step-by-step tutorials for 3D-printing the model. Furthermore, the  model costs less than 3$ to make, and was highly rated for its fidelity by expert laryngologists. Injection laryngoplasty is most often performed in clinic and can be difficult to teach to trainees. “We hope to democratize access to this important procedure with our simulator, hence our commitment to openly sharing our know-how with colleagues worldwide” said Dr. Rameau. This work was awarded a Sim Tank award by the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.
