Abstract

According to Ayurveda Arshas is mentioned in the heading of Maharogas because it is Dirghakalanubandhi (chronic) and Dushcikitsya (hard to treat) in nature and involves the Marma. Arsha occurs in Gudabhaga (anal region) which is a Marma and the disease is well known for its chronicity and difficulty to treat & hence a clinical study was carried out to compare the effects of Ksharkarma & cryosurgery. The present study was designed into 2 groups and 30 patients are studied in each group. The results were statistically analyzed and the results have shown that the Ksharkarma therapy is more effective in comparision with the cryosurgery.
