Abstract

A CLINICAL STUDY OF THE ANALGESIC EFFECT OF SHIGRU TWAKA GHANA VATI IN POST-OPERATIVE PAIN MANAGEMENT

Dr. K. Rajeshwar Reddy and Dr. Jaee Sunil Parvatkar*

ABSTRACT

Mankind has since its origin battled with the distinct physical feeling of unease and over the years nomenclated that particular feeling as “pain”. With the technological advent many attempts for newer modes of virtually painless surgical techniques and equipment were made thus bearing testament to the importance of pain management. Effective post-operative pain management has always been a struggle for the most excellent of surgeons right from the age of the great Acharya Sushruta. This struggle gave birth to many drugs by modern science such as NSAID e.g. Aceclofenac. These drugs though potent in pain relieving properties caused many side effects such as nausea, vomiting, dyspepsia, gastritis, triggering asthmatic attacks in sensitive patients, various gastrointestinal conditions, opiates addiction etc. and in addition had a long list of contraindicative clauses such as uncontrolled hypertension, myocardial infarction, bypass surgery, peptic ulcers etc. Thus the need to discover a safer, natural, herbal, cost effective, abundantly available drug formulation that relieves pain without causing side effects. Ayurveda in its scriptures described a drug that fulfils all these criterions namely SHIGRU. Inguinal hernias are surgical problems that are handled in day to day operative procedures and in this surgery the common intensity of tissue injury provides a uniform group of samples for study. 32 patients were given Shigru Twaka Ghana Vati (250mg) in dose 2 B.D after breaking NBM on post-operative day for 7 days. Pain relief was assessed using VAS scale and significant pain relief was seen at the end of study.

Keywords: Pain management, Inguinal Hernia, Shigru Twaka Ghana Vati, VAS scale.
