4Midface and skull reconstruction using Intraoperative navigation

After the repositioning of bony segments (using standard techniques described in the trauma section), the tip of the pointer is placed on the surface on each segment to correlate its actual position with the contours of the virtual template.

This procedure has to be repeated after any changes in the position of the segments.

Stable internal fixation is applied following correct positioning. This is performed as described in the trauma section.
