Tankanamrutha Malahara in the Management of Dushta Vrana w.s.r. to Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) - a case study.
Tankanamrutha Malahara in the management of Dushta Vrana.
DushtaVrana (non-healing ulcer) is a commonly encountered problem in surgical practice. Diabetes is one of the etiology of these wounds. In Ayurveda, Vrana Shodhana (purifying the wound) and Ropana (wound healing) are the preliminary steps of 60 measures for wound management. Lepa (medicated paste) is one among the Shasthi Upakrama (60 fold treatment modalities) and it has the effect of Shodhana (wound purification).Tankanamrutha Malahara has Shodhana and Ropana properties and is beneficial for all types of Vrana.
In this study, we have treated a case of chronic non-healing ulcer of 60 years female over the right third toe with Tankanamrutha Malahara.
