Abstract

A CASE REPORT ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF JALAUKAVACHARAN IN THE MANAGEMENT OF VARICOSE VEINS

Dr. Siddhi R. Nachankar* and Dr. Mukund D. Bamnikar

ABSTRACT

Varicose veins is the venous pathology of the veins with dilated, tortuous and elongated superficial vein with reversal of blood flow due to incompetence of valves. It is one which has permanently lost its valvular efficiency. Prolonged standing, obesity, old age, pregnancy form the etiological factors for varicosity. Nowadays changed lifestyle and work pattern i.e prolonged standing, obesity also cause the varicose veins. Venous pathology develops when venous return is impaired due to primary muscle pump failure, venous obstruction and valvular incompetence.[1] In Ayurveda the varicose veins is correlated to Siraaj Granthi which has been described by Acharya Sushruta also mentioned by Madhavakar and Bhav Mishra. When a durbalavyakti does vyayam it leads to vitiation of vata in venous network making the Siraa i.e veins tortuous and dilated. Further Ayurveda mentions the treatment for venous pathologies by Jalaukavacharan i.e. application of leech. In this article a case report of 55 years old female patient who came to OPD with the complaints of muscle cramps, pain and swelling in both legs has been discussed. On examination it was revealed that the patient has varicose veins on both lower limbs. Along with oral medication and proper diet Jalaukavacharan was done weekly for 1 month and then with 15 days gap for 2nd month. The clinical signs and symptoms of varicosity were reduced after the application of Leech i.e Jaluakavacharan.

Keywords: Varicose veins, siraaj granthi, jalaukavacharan.
