Ayurveda the science of healthy living encompasses various branches related to different therapeutic aspects; Shalya Chikitsa is one of them which involve surgical and para-surgical interventions. The Shalya Chikitsa deals with different surgical approaches for the management of various diseases such as; bhagandara, pilonidal sinus, arsha, charmakeela, kadara and kshara, etc. Shalya Chikitsa provides versatile approaches for therapeutic purpose and “Asta Vidha Shastra Karma” is one such approach. The management principles adopted for the wound management in the present modern science and the Shashti Upakrama mentioned by Sushrutha are similar and Sushrutha moreover lays great emphasis on the cosmetic repair of the formed scar and also mentions treatment modalities to prevent wound dehiscence and its recurrence.

This article summarizes role and applicability of Asta Vidha Shastra Karma in shalya tantra for the management of various surgical problems.
