BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of empty nose syndrome (ENS) has not been elucidated so far. Though postulated, there remains a lack of experimental evidence about the roles of nasal aerodynamics on the development of ENS. OBJECTIVE To investigate the nasal aerodynamic features of ENS andto explore the role of aerodynamic changes on the pathogenesis of ENS. METHODS Seven sinonasal models were numerically constructed, based on the high resolution computed tomography images of seven healthy male… CONTINUE READING
