Introduction: Approximately 25% of facial fractures involve the bony-orbit. Numerous techniques have been used to reconstruct orbital fractures. With advancing technology, new modalities that improve surgical accuracy whilst reducing perioperative morbidity are being utilised. Computed-tomography (CT) image-guided navigation is an approach that may prove useful for an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon. It allows real-time intraoperative localization of critical skeletal landmarks utilizing a preoperative CT-scan.
