The objective of this paper is to provide a brief introduction on the history, definition, and application of nomograms and then to illustrate simple procedures to develop a nomogram with an example based on a multivariate logistic regression model in thoracic surgery. In addition, validation strategies and common pitfalls have been highlighted.
