Abstract

Marma is one of the unique and important topics discussed in Ayurveda. It is important from surgical point of view, hence called as Shalya Vishyardha. Injury over these vital points results in fatal conequences like death, hence to perform surgical procedures knowledge of these Vital points is essential. Acharaya Charaka, Sushruta and Vagbhatta have explained 107 Marmas in our body. Acharya Charaka has explained Trimarma (Hridaya, Shiras and Basti) in detail among 107 Marmas from treatment point of view. Acharya Vagbhatta has explained 9 Dhamani Marma, apart from Acharya Sushruta. Marmas are the conglomeration points of Mamsa, Sira, Snayu, Asthi and Sandhi and Pranas are naturally present in it. Hence a trauma to anyone of these Marmas hampers the activity of the body depending upon the peculiarity of that particular Marma. Acharya Dalhana defined Marmas are such points which leads to death. Acharya Charaka has not defined the word Marma but has explained that Marmas are such points where the sense of pain will be felt more intensely compared to other parts Of the body. Lohitaksha Marma which is present in both the extremities, is classified under Vaikalyakara Marma based on the results of the injuries on this Marma. It is a Sira Marma and is Ardha Angula in Pramana. Acharya Sushruta said that corresponding site to be taken for its location in the upper extremity.[8] Hence Lohitaksha Marma is located above Urvi Marma of upper extremity, below Kaksha Sandhi and Bahumoola. The Viddha Lakshanas are Marana (death) due to Lohitakshaya (blood loss) and Pakshaghata (paralysis). Anatomical features of Lohitaksha Marma in upper limb Considering its location as mentioned above the location of Lohitaksha Marma can be approximated at the centre of the axilla. The axilla is a pyramidal region between the upper thoracic wall and the arm. Its blunt apex continues into the root of the neck (cervico-axillary canal) between the external border of the first rib, superior border of the scapula, posterior surface of the clavicle and the medial aspect of the coracoid process. Its base, which is virtual, can be imagined as facing downwards: it is broad at the chest and narrow at the arm, and corresponds to the skin and a thick layer of axillary fascia between the inferior borders of pectoralis major anteriorly and latissimus dorsi posteriorly. It is convex upwards, conforming to the concavity of the armpit. Anterior wall is formed by the pectoralis major and minor. posterior wall is formedby subscapularis above, teres major and lattisimus dorsi below.
