Abstract

Wound dehiscence is the common problem which is faced by most of the surgeons in case of obese people. As we know, in case of post-operative wound management, avascularity and excessive adipose tissue lysis can lead to fluid collection which leads to gapping of sutured wound. This may also cause Dushta vrana i.e. secondary infection to the wound. Wound dehiscence in surgical field leads to most fatal outcome which can lead to cause local as well as systemic sepsis in the patient. Present case report reveals a treatment modality which involves multidisciplinary team approach such as management of wound as well as obesity by using Ayurvedic perspective. Whereas modern technique of resuturing the gapped wound exposes patient to another surgical procedure which is expensive and increases the hospital stay. The local and oral drugs formulations were proven effective in reducing excessive wound discharge as well as they stimulate the wound healing mechanism when administered in both local and systemic ways. The cost and benefit ratio was found high as there is no re-exposure to the surgical procedure and patient will get benefitted with non-invasive technique along with minimal expenses and hospital stay.
