Overview of Academic Researches on Vranaropan (Tissue Healing)

Properties of Ayurvedic Drugs

Sathish H.S.*, Dudhamal T.S.**, Gupta S.K.***, Bhuyan C.****, Baghel M.S.*****
Management of the wound probably would have been the first medico-surgical problem faced by
physicians. Around 235 research works have been carried out at the different institutions throughout
India till date on Vranaropan (wound healing) which is an integral part of the tissue healing. Major works
are carried out at Government Ayurvedic Medical College, Bangalore followed by Banaras Hindu
University, Varanasi and Institute for Post Graduate Teaching & Research in Ayurveda at Jamnagar.
Around 87 single drug and 139 compound preparations have been studied. 203 exclusive clinical works
were done, 24 experimental studies and only 07 clinico-experimental studies were reported. Compound
preparations with Ghrita (Ghee based preparations) and Taila (Oil based preparations) were preferred
among different formulations used. Maximum works were conducted on Dushtavrana (Infected/Chronic
wound) as it implies more problems to achieve the goal of healing. Apart from many works done in this
regard, still there is a lot of scope felt by the scholars to find out and establish a suitable wound healer from
the treasure of the ancient literatures. This review works have been carried out to give the glimpses of
works done at different institutions of India most of them are unpublished.
