Dr. Yogesh Badwe, Dr. Kiran Maindale

Abstract


A chronic non healing venous ulcer is condition in which wound healing is worsen by incompetent venous valves and stagnant blood in lower extremities. Multiple debridement and antibiotic therapy can not improve the healing of wound. In Ayurvedic literature Jalukavacharan (leech therapy) is used to improve the granulation.

   In the present study patient with chronic non healing ulcer was undergone Jalukavacharan therapy to achieve healthy granulated wound bed and further undergone skin grafting and cured completely. Leeches can be used as a successful tool in this situation by relieving venous pooling of blood and also by liquefying the clotted blood. It also enhances granulation tissue which is important for preparing wound bed. Jaluka stimulate circulation of cells and maintain oxygenation of the tissue.


Keywords
