    On Sep 3, 2012, several rhinology specialized medical staff members in Shenzhen Pengcheng Hospital were stabbed by a patient with blood-covered hands; on Oct 25, 2013, a chief physician of the otolaryngology department of the first People’s Hospital of Wenling, was killed in his clinic while working on a patient. The recent events of violence against doctors in China have caused great shock throughout most of the country. We can’t help wanting to ask: Who is at the bottom of all these troubles? Speaking of this problem, Empty nose syndrome (ENS) is an unavoidable topic. In the past decade, ENS is becoming increasingly common iatrogenic disorder but poorly understood resulting from the destruction of normal nasal tissue [1].
