Abstract

Navigation technology has given surgeons the capacity to know precisely where their instruments are during surgery, and simulation-guided navigation is a surgical method which is based on the use of navigation technology linked to 3D virtual surgery simulation. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the absolute accuracy of simulation-guided navigation as an aid to reproduce the planned position of the distraction device vector in pediatric mandibular distraction osteogenesis.
