Pre-operative planning for a large obstructing polypoid laryngeal tumour raised concerns about airway intubation. A 3D model was visualised and then printed to allow anaesthetists to plan intubation technique and ensure that appropriate equipment was at hand. This led to successful and safe intubation of the patient.
