6. BRIEF RESUME OF THE STUDY
6.1 Need For The Study:
Dusta Vrana is a common and oftenly encountered problem faced in surgical practice.
The presence of Dushta Vrana worsens the condition of the patient with different
complications and may become fatal.
Local factors of wound like slough, infection and foreign body, affect the normal
process of healing. A healthy wound in a normal body heals earlier with a minimum scar as
compared to a contaminated wound. Therefore in the present concept all efforts are directed
to keep the wound clean during the various stages of its healing. Good wound healing with
minimal scar formation with least pain effectively is the prime motto of every surgeon.
Sushruta1a, Charaka2, Vaghbhata3, Madhavakar4 and Sharangdhara5a have clearly
mentioned the Lakshanas of Dushta Vrana as foul smelling, continuously flowing pus along
with blood, with cavity, since long time etc, which can be correlated to non-healing or
There have been many studies on Vrana Prakshalana, Pichu, Lepa, Ghrita,Taila,
Rasakriya, Avachurna for Dushta Vrana by various Research Centers in India. But till now
no study has been carried out on Malahara. So there is need to evaluate Effect of
Hingulamrutadi Malahara in Dusta Vrana
Hingulamrutadi Malahara contains drugs like Hingula, Rasa Karpura, Sphatika,
Siktha, Tankana, Panchavalkala Kashaya, Nirgundi Svarasa, Tila Taila, Haridra and Arka,
which are having properties like Sarvadoshahara, Vranashodhana, Lekhana, Kandughna,
Sravarodhaka Vranaghna, Krimighna, Bhutavishapaha, Puyanirharna and Vrana Shodana and
Ropana in different types of Vrana6
In this present study, the formulation of Hingulamrutadi Malahara has been taken by
adding drugs mentioned above, having Shodhana and Ropana properties and is mentioned in
the Rasa Tarangini and its efficacy will be clinically evaluated by administering it as a local
application in patients of Dusta Vrana.
6.2 Review of literature:
Sushruta has mentioned the Lakshanas of Dushta Vrana1a, like Ati-Vivruta, Ati-
Ushna, Puya-Srava, Puti-Gandha, Daha, Raga, Vedana and Paka Yukta.
There are 6 types of Dushta Vrana1a classified based on the involment of Dosha’s.
Sushruta has indicated use of Shodana and Ropana Tailas in the treatment of Dushta
Due to various way of the manifestation of Vrana, the various recipes of external
application and internal administration are available. In case of external application
various formulations for debridement are mentioned such as Kwatha, Kalka,
Choorna, Rasakriya, Varti, Taila, Ghrita and Malahara depending on the Avastha of
Vrana and Dosha involved.
