ENSIA received a message from Stanford University scientists, and we are happy to share it with the ENS community:
Dear ENS community,We would like to thank you all for your generous support of our research. Your kind participation in our Stanford-affiliated research survey via the ENSIA website, online ENS forums and other social media avenues allowed us to capture one of the largest samples of ENS sufferers ever studied.These findings were presented to an audience of ENT surgeons from around the world at the annual American Rhinologic Society Meeting in Chicago last year.One component of this study, “The Functional and Psychological Burden of Empty Nose Syndrome”, has now been published in a peer-reviewed ENT journal called International Forum of Allergy and Rhinology. (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/alr.22097)Please also find a link to a podcast where we discuss the findings of this paper as well as the future of ENS research with Dr. Timothy Smith.http://www.scopeitoutpodcast.com/podcast/episode-21-functional-psychological-burden-empty-nose-syndrome-guest-dr-andrew-thamboo/?elq_mid=26205&elq_cid=8136753With your ongoing support, we hope to use research to better understand ENS pathophysiology, to determine best practices to manage ENS symptoms, and to advocate for ENS.Thank you again for you time.
Yours Sincerely,Drs. Andrew Thamboo and Jayakar Nayak
We express infinite gratitude to our ENS-friendly doctors for their efforts and support!
