Ksharsutra, Unit Cutting Time, Bhagandara.


Kshar is considered superior to all surgical and para surgical measures because it performs the action of chhedan, bhedhan and lekhan. Ksharasutra is considered a gold standard and a unique effective parasurgical remedy for the Bhagandar with a high success rate and the minimal chance  of recurrance. Ksharsutra is a herbal medicated thread which exerts mechanical as well as chemical action to perform the work of curetting, draining and cleaning of the fistula tract. Despite being a successeful therapy, Apamarga Ksharsutra has certain drawbacks like pain, burning sensation and itching at the point due to corrosive nature of kshar. To overcome these challenges, several other ksharsutra have been prepared by different researchers using various medicines having binding properties on thread and which are less irritant and carries  vranshodhaka and vranropaka properties. In Shusrut samhita 18 different types of kshar are mentioned which are used to treat different conditions, either orally ( paneey kshar) or locally ( Pratisaraneey kshar).
