Sanjay Kumar*, Vinita Gupta, Puneet Kumar Garg and Jayant Nagar

ABSTRACT

Avascular Necrosis (AVN) is a progressive disorder with steroid intervention as the prime choice. AVN is a condition affecting different bones as a result of transient / permanent loss of blood supply to the bones. Eventual collapse of the bone tissue and its death is the resultant of the ischemia along with its overlying joint surface. AVN is caused due to arterial occlusion and femoral head is most common type of necrosis affecting the bones. Progressive increase of the pain worsens with time and patient experiences pain on rest associated with stiffness. The features of Asthimajjavruta Vata can be correlated with AVN. In current study a single male patient of 57 yrs of age having signs and symptoms of AVN and MRI, X-RAY bilateral hip showing AVN of femoral head was selected and Panchakarma treatment was administered for 3 month in department of Panchakarma S.S.S.B. Ayurved college K. Renwal, Jaipur (Raj.). This is a case report demonstrating that a combination of Ayurvedic medicines and procedures may be helpful to arrest further necrosis and rejuvenate the bones. It also provides highly significant results in improving range of movements and pain intensity. This line of treatment provided a highly significant result was observed and there was improvement in cardinal symptoms of AVN.
