4Midface and skull reconstruction using Intraoperative navigation

Reconstruction of the supraorbital rim and the frontal bone is performed with a 3D-titanium mesh. The bony fragments of the anterior wall of the frontal sinus are fixed with mini-screws to the titanium mesh. Positioning and shape is guided by intraoperative navigation as described above for orbital wall reconstruction. Medial canthopexy is performed using a barb wire fixed to the titanium mesh as described in the trauma section.
