Abstract

ROLE OF SHASHTI UPAKRAMA IN STANA VIDHRADHI (BREAST ABSCESS): A CASE STUDY

Dr. Yennawar Sandhya M.* Dr. Bawankar Rupali J. and Dr. Lonikar S. R.

ABSTRACT

The detail study of breast diseases has been found in Sushruta Samhita. The common breast complications in puerperium are breast engorgement, breast abscess, cracked & retracted nipple,mastitis, failing lactation. Breast engorgement is due to exaggerated normal venous & lymphatic engorgement of the breast which precedes lactation. Acute mastitis is inflammation of breast. When a pregnant lady or a lady in purperium consumes of wholesome food or allows unwholesome regimen the vitiated dose reach the lactiferous ductules or through vessels reach the breast & form a hard vrana shotha. This type of inflammatory swelling can occur in both a lactating or non lactating breast. If above conditions are not diagnosed properly & not adequately treated it leads to variable destruction of breast tissues with the formation of a breast abscess. Breast abscess it is a condition with a brawny oedema of the overlying skin marked tenderness with fluctuation, swinging temperature. According to Ayurved breast abscess is correlated with Stana Vidhradhi. Acharya Sushruta has described shashti Upakrama (60 measures) for Vranashopha,Vranavidhradhi &Vrana. Among these pachan, parishek, bhedan, pidan, shodhan & ropan treatment is used for Stana Vidhradhi. We observed complete relief from signs & symptoms of Stana Vidhradhi within 1& ½ month. By this case study we conclude that the holistic approach of ayurvedic shashti upakarmas plays an important role in the management of stana vidradhi (Breast abscess)& presented a case study.

Keywords: Vrana, vranashopha, vranashodhan, vranaropan, shashtiupakrama, Breast abscess and Mastitis.
