Abstract

AN APPRAISAL ON AYURVEDA PERSPECTIVES OF SHASHTI UPAKRAMA

Dr. Meena Alnewar*, Dr. Priyanka Deshpande, Dr. Sharad Tripathi and Dr. Nirmala Apturkar

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda is a holistic science of medicine and Shalyatantra is one of the branch amongst Ashtanga. Shalyatantra is of prime importance because there are many diseased conditions where only medication can not work effectively. Shashti Upakrama (Sixty procedures) deals with the management of Vrana Shopha (Inflammation), Vrana and the cosmetic repair of the formed scar. The management principles adopted for the wound management in the present modern science and the Shashti Upakrama mentioned by Sushrutha are similar and Sushrutha moreover lays great emphasis on the cosmetic repair of the formed scar and also mentions treatment modalities to prevent wound dehiscence and its recurrence. Shashti Upakrama is not only a scientific method for the management of a wound/ulcer from the stage of abscess to the stage of a well formed, cosmetically acceptable scar but is a more advantageous methodology. This article is aimed to review classical aspects of Shashti Upkrama.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Shashti Upakrama, Sushrutha Samhita, Vrana, Wounds.
