Abstract

AYURVEDIC ASPECT OF CADAVER PRESERVATION AND DISSECTION

Dr. Mohammad Arif* and Dr. Mohammad Mudassir

Abstract

Dissecting the human body is the most essential part of practically understanding the subject anatomy. Acharya shushruta, often known as the father of surgery had done attempts to preserve the dead body for further studies about the whole bodily structures. Embalming is the process of preserving a body to delay the natural breakdown of cells which begins when a person is dead. In earlier times the dead body was preserved to make the deceased suitable for public and private viewing as part of the funeral ceremony or to keep them preserved for medical purposes in anatomical laboratories. But acharya shushruta had given the preservation techniques with the only purpose of studying and describing anatomical structures of human body, this shows that in those times as well he was very much aware about the importance of practical knowledge in medical studies. In this article we will be discussing about the importance of cadaver preservation and how finely acharya shushruta had described the preservation process.

Keywords: Embalming, anatomy, dissection.
