Hypertension is the major cause of CVDs and stroke around the globe and is estimated to cause about 12.8% of all the deaths. The worldwide occurrence of hypertension has increased from 4.5%, to 7% from 2007-2010 (WHO-2008; AU-2013). Several in-vivo studies have been done in rats to prove the safety and efficacy of leaves of Moringa (Shigru) an Ayurvedic shrub in hypertension1. Safety and efficacy studies did not show any toxicity till a dose of 100 mg/kg body weight2. This pilot study was conducted on 10 human subjects diagnosed with spontaneous hypertension. The paper was presented as a poster in the 104th Indian Science Congress held at Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. The study has proved that the decoction of Moringa oleifera leaves are effective in reducing blood pressure.

Rehabilitation is the act of restoring function of an affected part to its pre-injured state. Im- proved results of fracture management owe much towards rehabilitation which is one among the three standard principles of fracture treatment. Rehabilitation should begin as soon as the fracture is reduced by definitive treatment. The earliest descriptions of rehabilitative care can be traced from the compendium by legendary surgeon Susruta. The possibilities of panchakarma (purificatory therapies) and allied treatment modalities in post fracture rehabil-itation are well explained and practically explored by ancient physicians. These descriptions aim at the effective rehabilitation and functional restoration of the affected part. The post fracture complications including joint stiffness, muscle wasting, and restricted mobility of the affected part can be successfully managed by a combination of ayurvedic therapies including panchakarma.

Pilonidal sinus is a chronic inflammatory track in mid gluteal cleft usually associated with hairs with an incidence rate of twenty six per one lakh population. It is more prevalently seen in the natal cleft of hairy middle aged obese, males. Such type of non-healing tracts may be considered as Nāḍivraṇa (Sinuses) and can either be treated by the conventional Kṣārasūtra (medicated seton) therapy or contemporary treatment methods. Irrespective of whatsoever management protocol adopted, it inevitably needs long term hospitalisation and is associated with complications. A case of a 28 year old male patient, presenting with pain (within tolerable limits) in the natal cleft and frequent occurrence of a pustule which burst out spontaneously on and off, diagnosed as pilonidal sinus (nāḍi vraṇa) was treated with excision of tract and Tailadāha (thermal cauterization with hot oil) with a combination of yaṣṭimadhu taila and powdered Copper Sulphate (CuSO4). Good haemostasis and uneventful wound healing with a minimally invasive and cost effective treatment was the outcome of study. This study represents an innovative treatment modality in pilonidal sinus. More »»

Wound healing is a physiological process and there are various supportive aids to speedy healing. Acharya Susruta has given due importance to explain about the proper care of a wounded patient irrespective of the cause of wound either surgery or trauma. Injury is a public health problem of enormous magnitude and surgery is another common cause creating the burden of wounds. Statistical data regarding the complications of wound healing and infections of wound is so alarming that there arises a need for retrospection into the conventional concepts of care of a wounded person. Optimal management of the wounded patient is essential as a prophylaxis to surgical site infections and post traumatic complications. The general practitioners with expertise and experience who are an integral part of providing the essential care should appreciate the integrity of a science like Ayurveda and also promote the ideas incorporated in the age old compendiums. Careful management of the wound post traumatically or post operatively is an important part of post wound recovery of the patient. Current care of wounded must be appraised and reassessed for appropriateness and effectiveness. Nutritional status, psychological well-being, environmental and personal hygiene has been long ago recognised as essential in improving the quality of life of the wounded. This article is an attempt to collect and validate these concepts mentioned in Vranitopasaneeya Adhyaya of Susruta. More »»

Agnikarma or thermal cauterization is one among the anushastras (substitute of surgical instrument) or para-surgical technique mentioned in Ayurveda. It is explained to provide complete relief in certain chronic diseases which are not cured by herbal medicine, surgical interventions and alkaline cauterization. Based on the specific heat retention and transmission capacity of different materials the ancient Indian surgeons had prescribed different materials like pippali (pipper longum), ajasakrut (goats excreta), godantha (cow’s tooth), shara (arrow), shalaka (metal Rods), kshoudra (honey), guda (jaggery), sneha (oil/fat) etc. for cauterizing specific body parts like skin, muscle, blood vessels, ligaments etc. According to the logic of the surgeon appropriate material should be selected for specific disease conditions. The mechanism of action of agnikarma is still obscure. Agnikarma act on a multi-factorial level in the body. Mainly it is indicated in the disease caused by vata and kapha because of its tikshna (quick action), ushna (Hotness), sookshma (subtle), vyavayi (Quick spreading), vikashi (works without being metabolised) proporties to remove srotorodha (obstruction in channels of body). In this article an attempt is being made to unveil the principles of agnikarma.

Ayurveda states that congenital disorders can be due to defect in germ cells or somatic cells in the intra-uterine environment. The interaction of germ cell genotype, geo-climatic & uterine factors, mother's diet & activities as well as the nature of Panchamahabhoota in the environment at the time of fertilization, determine the Prakriti (phenotype). The unhealthy state of either factor can affect the prakriti of the fetus & even result in congenital diseases. Ayurveda supports different clan (Atulya gotra) marriage, as consanguinity increases the risk of congenital anomalies. It is mentioned that a seed cultivated in a healthy field only can yield supreme variety of crop; the procedures to make the reproductive system healthy may prevent the occurrence of congenital disorders. Ayurgenomicsis is a phenomenon where, by personalized health care approach before conception may help to prevent the congenital anomalies to some extent. The present review aims to highlight Ayurgenomics in predictive, preventive and personalized aspects of congenital anomalies. Thus, Ayurgenomics may be a new facet for the preventive aspect of congenital disorders. More »»

In ancient India, when battle field injuries were common, locating the impacted weapons, splints, stones or other foreign body from the body of the patients was a challenge to, the then surgeons. Even in the absence of any modern diagnostic tools the ancient physicians could exactly diagnose it and save the patient by expelling the foreign body. Some of these methods have strong scientific background whereas some others are quite difficult to substantiate. But in a developing country like India where a large section of the population live in remote areas, inaccessible to proper diagnostic centers these methods have a wide range of application. Sushruta Samhita is a voluminous text of ancient surgical skill contributed a specialized chapter for the diagnosis and management of lost foreign body in the body tissue. Here an attempt was made to analyze its relevance in the present era with scientific validation More »»
