编者按：第二届剑桥国际胸外微创手术研讨会（The 2nd Cambridge International VATS Symposium）于 10 月 16-17 日在英国剑桥马丁利礼堂旅舍成功举办。此次研讨会上，来自荷兰马斯特里赫特大学医学中心的 Dr. Peyman Sardari Nia 就胸外科手术术前计划及模拟进行了精彩演讲。AME 出版社编辑有幸邀请到 Dr. Sardari Nia 进行了此次采访。采访中，Dr. Sardari Nia 提出了虽然如今有关 3D 打印的报道案例不多，但是 3D 打印技术却是拥有着无限可能性，对术前模拟有着一定指导性意义。此外，谈及此前 ACS 大会上关于“what do you love about surgery”一问时，Dr. Sardari Nia 则道出了自己心中的答案——Surgery is combining art with science。
Today your speech is about the pre-operative planning, would you like to share with us some take-home messages about pre-operative planning?
Would you like to share with us what is function of 3D printing in thoracic surgery and in what situation will 3D printing need to be applied?
In this year’s American College of Surgeons (ACS), there was a post board written, “what do you love about surgery”. Here we would also want to ask--what do you love about surgery?
