      I have read with great interest Lin and colleagues' article on the use of augmented reality (AR) in zygomaticomaxillary complex (ZMC) fractures fixation.

      Preliminary reports of augmented-reality assisted craniofacial bone fracture reduction.
      Augmented Reality (AR) is a rapidly advancing technology that is gaining acceptance and application in a variety of surgical fields. There have been numerous studies evaluating the precision and accuracy of AR-guided navigation. This study contributes to the body of evidence demonstrating the exciting potential of augmented reality in craniomaxillofacial surgery.
