Empty Nose Syndrome on Health Report with Norman Swan (RN, (Australia)

“ImaginENS on RN (Australia)e this: your nasal cavity feels so blocked that you can’t breathe properly – to the point that you feel like you’re suffocating.”

A recent interview about ENS by ENSIA’s member Erika Schneider and ENS-authority Dr. Steven Houser (MetroHealth, USA)

Empty Nose Syndrome: Explaining Nasal Aerodynamics (Website Recommendation)

Website “Empty Nose Syndrome Aerodynamics” was created by one of ENS patients and is devoted to explanation of ENS and nasal aerodynamics – click here to read more

“There is this thing called Empty Nose Syndrome and it’s REALLY Bad. I don’t know what your issue is but you’ve already had enough removed, don’t do any more” (Anonymous doctor from Group Health, Redmond WA 2008)

ENS Aerodynamics (PE)

“I work in Aerospace Engineering and after being diagnosed with “E.N.S.” I had seen many studies regarding the computer modeling of airflow patterns through the nose and I realized that I had the scientific capabilities to do my own CFD (Computational Fluid dynamics) aerodynamics study regarding the surgically altered airflow through my nose. I am a unique patient in that since I work in engineering and I collect and analyze data for a living, I have a meticulously detailed and well documented case of E.N.S.

I will be presenting sleep data, CT scans and “CFD” flow models (based on my CT scans) which document my condition before and after 2 destructive surgeries. I will also be releasing CFD results that show the improvement I saw after getting nasal “Implants” at some point in the near future. I have decided to share my research and my personal story which documents my rather debilitating condition in the hopes that it advances the understanding both among doctors and patients regarding the inherent dangers and risks associated with “aggressive” nasal surgeries. I hope to once and for all dispel some of the controversy and misconceptions regarding ENS to this very day by providing solid fact based measurable evidence, even regarding how and why ENS destroys one’s ability to sleep. Far too often ENS symptoms are referred to as “subjective” by doctors who cannot seem to measure the damage which (besides dry sclerotic or missing tissue), is largely internal but is in fact very real and gravely serious.”

 

La Sindrome del Naso Vuoto: diagnosi e trattamento (Italy)

SNC

Dr. Rosario La Rosa, an otorhinolaryngologist from Bologna, Italy, discusses Empty Nose Syndrome and the specialized center for the diagnosis and treatment of ENS at the Clinic Villaba in Bologna. Ear or septal cartilage is used as graft for reconstruction of the turbinates. Graft preparation and implant sites are guided by a three-dimensional CT images using a software based system.

Some quotes of ENT specialists:

“… The excess removal of turbinate tissue might lead to empty-nose syndrome. Excess resection can lead to crusting, bleeding, breathing difficulty (often the paradoxical sensation of obstruction), recurrent infections, nasal odor, pain, and often clinical depression. In one study, the mean onset of symptoms occurred more than 8 years following the turbinectomies.”

““Removal of an entire inferior turbinate for benign disease is strongly discouraged because removal of an inferior turbinate can produce nasal atrophy and a miserable person. Such people unfortunately are still seen in the author’s offices; these people are nasal cripples.”

“Unfortunately, a wide nasal cavity syndrome due to reduction or resection of the inferior turbinate (and/or middle turbinate) is still frequently seen. In our opinion, it is a “nasal crime.”
