Recently a two-port open fetoscopic myelomeningocele (MMC) repair technique, performed together by a pediatric neurosurgeon and maternal-fetal medicine specialist was described.1 Acquiring skills for this type of fetoscopic surgery is complex since MMC lesions are anatomically variable and collaboration of two surgical specialists is required. We utilized ultrasound-based 3D multi-material printing to generate a patient–matched medical model to prepare the surgical team for fetoscopic MMC repair.
