In this case report, the authors suggest intraoperative surgical navigation systems are useful for accurately determining the dimensions of the frontal sinus for osteoplastic flap surgery. The patient underwent successful and safe osteoplastic flap surgery using a surgical navigation system. Surgical navigation is useful and safe for frontal sinus osteoplastic flap surgery.
