Abstract

REVIEW OF VARICOSE VEINS WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO VATARAKTA

Vd. Marathe Amruta Dilip* and Vd. Amrutkar Prashant Pandurang

ABSTRACT

Varicose Veins can be explained as a disorder of the veins (especially of legs) where they get affected due to the backward flow of the blood. The veins get perverted, become enlarged. The disease also shows many associated symptoms which worsens the condition of the varicose veins. Varicose veins are widely seen as medically unimportant and deserving low priority for treatment. While treating varicose veins, have limited scope in other pathies; hence there is a need to see varicosity in an ayurvedic view. The present article is an attempt to have a look on varicose veins with special reference to Vatarakta. Vatarakta is described under Vatavyadhis, is a very important disease in Ayurveda. It is an illness where both vata and rakta are afflicted by distinct etiological factors. There are 2 types of vatarakta i.e. uttan vatarakta and gambhir vatarakta. Uttan vatarakta produces symptoms like itching, burning sensation, pain, blackish discolouration of skin. Gambhir vatarakta produces symptoms like swelling, hardness, tenderness, burning sensation, pain. Sushruta has described Vatarakta in the Vatavyadhi chapter while Charak gave separate chapter on Vatarakta. Though varicose veins also shows close resemblance with Siraj Granthi and Siragat Vata; In the present article, review for varicose veins with special reference to Vatarakta is attempted.

Keywords: Varicose Veins, Vatarakta, Uttan Vatarakta, Vataj Vatarakta.
