Abstract

“The destruction / break / rupture / discontinuity of body tissue / part of body, is called Vrana.â€A clean wound in a normal body heals earlier with a minimum scar as compared to contaminated wound. Wound healing is mechanism where the body attempts to restore the integrity of the injured part. Several factors affects the normal process of wound healing such as the site of wound, contamination (foreign bodies/bacterial), local factors like vascular insufficiency or previous radiation, systemic factors such as malnutrition, Disease like diabetes mellitus, Immune deficiencies and medications  like steroids.  Acharya Sushruta mentioned 60 Upakramas for the management of Vrana and local application of DurvaTail Vrana Basti is one among them. The local application of VranaBasti is one of the best substitutes for of chronic wound healing & the DurvaTail have better shodhana & ropana effect.
