Rajendra Sonekar*, Pratik Devrao Gaikwad and Aruna Sonekar

Abstract

Venous ulcers (Varicose ulcers or stasis ulcers) are the wounds occurring due to inappropriate functioning of venous valves, commonly of legs. It is most common and serious chronic venous insufficiency complication. The overall incidence rate is 0.76 % in men and 1.42 % in women. When venous valve gets damaged, it prevents the backflow of blood, which causes pressure in the vein that leads to hypertension, which stretches the veins resulting in ulcer formation. If not treated properly, the ulcers may get infected leading to cellulitis or gangrene and eventually may need amputation of the part of limb. In Ayurveda, varicose ulcers can be correlated with ‘Siragata Dushta Vrana’. Acharya Sushruta has advocated the Shashthi upakrama[1] (60 procedures) for treating the dushta vrana, among which Dhawana/ Parishek[2] become third upakrama/procedure that means parishek procedure is included in first top 3 procedures and is useful in infected and non-healing wounds. Patients with varicose ulcers was advised to take ‘Sukshma Triphala’ internally and ‘Panchavalkala Kwatha Dhawana’ over lower limb daily twice a day followed by cleaning and dressing of wound which proved very effective and the ulcer healed completely in 30 days.

Keywords: Varicose ulcer, Siragata dushta vrana, Shashti upkrama, Parishek.
