Abstract

A CASE REPORT-ROLE OF KSHARAKARMA IN DUSTA VRANA

N. Parameshwari Melgade*, Rajneesh V. Giri and Sahana Kamath

Abstract

Ksharakarma is said to be one among the Anushastra karma as explained by Acharya Sushrutha. Kshara i.e. caustic alkali is considered as superior among shastra and anushastra because it does the functions like excision, cutting and srcaping. It also mitigates all the tridosha. It is versatile, because even such places that are difficult to approach by ordinary measures can be treated by kshara karma. There is a wide range of description available about kshara in many authoritative texts of ayurveda. However, Acharya Sushruta is the pioneer of kshara kalpana, as he introduced kshara kalpana in one of the specific chapter. These kshara preparations have many therapeutic usages and even proved to be effective in treating many disorders. Application of these preparations have replaced many surgical procedure too. Pratisaraniya kshara in Arshas causes necrosis of haemorroidal mass, in case of Bagandhara the kshara sutra helps in cutting of the track followed by healing, in case of dusta vrana kshara helps in removing the unhealthy granulation tissue and helps in healing of the wound from the base. Kshara karma is milder procedure when compared to surgical procedure so application of kshara is found to be safe, efficacious and cost-effective method of treatment. It also has mild post-operative pain, no bleeding, minimum hospitalization and less chances of recurrence. Hence kshara karma plays an important role in treating the disease of Shalya tantra.

Keywords: Dusta Vrana, Kshara karma, Anushastra karma.
