Abstract

Post-traumatic orbital reconstruction is a complex issue that involves both the soft tissue and bony injury. The current literature focuses primarily on bony reconstruction, with fewer investigators evaluating soft-tissue injuries. This article will review recent advances in orbital reconstruction, including presurgical planning software, intra-operative navigation, patient-specific implants, and intra-operative imaging. Recent findings Traditional techniques for diagnosis and orbital injuries continue to be refined; however, advances in computer-aided surgery are allowing surgeons to significantly improve the anatomic accuracy of orbital reconstruction. Summary While not all surgeons currently have access to computer-aided applications for orbital reconstruction, these techniques will continue to be refined, resulting in lower cost and greater access.
