Study on the efficacy of Palandu Ghrita in the Management of Sutured Clean Lacerated Wound w.s.r. To Hypertrophic scar
Ayurveda is a science of life and is believed to exist as long as the origin of life on this nature as it mentioned in Charak Samhita. Ever since, the life originated, human being has been susceptible to injury which is made him to think about healing.
Hypertrophic scar is a type of scar characterized by hypertrophy or proliferation of mature fibroblast or fibrous tissue without proliferation of blood vessels. It is caused due to tissue formation during healing process. Acharya Sushruta has mentioned Palandu (Allium Cepa) as Sthirdhatukarta and Krumighna. Palandu is one of the oldest cultivated vegetables in indian history. Palandu contains vitamin A, C and proteins which are essential factors for wound healing ,with keeping these factors in mind,present study was planned as a local application of Palandu Ghrita to prevent hypertrophic scar because prevention is better than cure.
For this research study we designed 2 groups viz. experimental group (Group A) i.e. application of Palandu Ghrita and control group (Group B) i.e. application of plain gauze piece. In this, we observed 30 patients from each group according to age, occupation, family history, sharir prakruti etc. and made result on the basis of assessment criteria like pain, scar colour, pliability, tenderness etc. By taking all observations into consideration we made result by using Wilcoxon signed rank test and Mann Whitney’s U test and came on the conclusion that Palandu Ghrita application prevents hypertrophic scar with economical and easy acceptability.
