Abstract

Marmas is that vital organs / vital parts of the body where trauma / injury may be cause sudden death and may be deformity in the body. This concept was firstly mentioned by Acharya Charaka but detail about this was explained by Acharya Sushruta in shareera sthana. These are 107 in number and classified under various categories, Vishalyghna is one among them. Vishalyaghana marmas are totally 3 in number i.e. 2 Utkshepas and 1 Sthapani, injury to these causes death but it is after removal of shalya from injured part, so here our attempt is to clarify the concept of vishalyaghna marma (type of parinama) i.e what is criteria behind to name marma as vishalyaghna.
