CONCLUSION: The ENT magnetic navigation system is potentially useful and offers the most accurate technique for harvesting frontal osteoplastic flaps. It represents a valid tool in the wide range of instruments available to rhinologists. OBJECTIVE: Precise delineation of the boundaries of the frontal sinus is a crucial step when harvesting a frontal osteoplastic flap. We present a novel technique using the ENT magnetic navigation system. METHODS: Nineteen patients affected by different pathologies involving the frontal sinus underwent an osteoplastic flap procedure using the ENT magnetic navigation system between January 2009 and April 2011. RESULTS: The ENT magnetic navigation system was found to be a safe and accurate tool for delineating the frontal sinus boundaries. No intraoperative complications occurred during the osteoplastic procedures.
