Investigator initial study to evaluate the use of preoperative computer modeling and the
intraoperative navigation to guide reconstruction of the maxillofacial skeleton.
The concept of open reduction and internal fixation of facial fractures is well accepted.
However, there are situations in which an accurate reduction and restoration of facial
symmetry is challenging. In these more difficult cases, the PI uses computer aided
design/modeling software as well as intra-operative computer aided surgical navigation
systems to assist with repair of these complex injuries. A retrospective review of these
cases has not previously been performed.
- specific complex maxillofacial trauma
