While explaining the scope of Shalya Tantra. Even though healing of Vrana is a natural process of the body, the Vrana should be protected from Dosha Dushti and from various micro organisms, which may afflict the Vrana and delay the normal healing process. So, for the early and uncomplicated healing of Vrana, treatment is necessary. In healing of Vrana, local treatment is also important along with oral medications. Dushta Vrana is a long standing ulcer with profuse discharge and slough, where clearing slough and enabling drug to reach the healthy tissue is more important.
