marga sankoch (Urethral stricture) is one of the common disorders of urinary
tract. So far in modern surgery effective therapy has not been established for
the condition. Though gradual urethral dilatation is practised, it shows very
low cure rate and recurrences are common.
of years ago Acharya Sushruta had recommended Uttarbasti for the management of
such type of urinary tract disorders. This therapy has been re-established
after a thorough and scientific clinical study. The study was carried out in
the Dept. of Shalya Tantra, Govt. Ayurvedic College
and Hostpital, Nanded (Maharashtra).
Thirty patients of
urethral stricture were selected randomly for the study. After completion of
Uttarbasti at the interval of 7 days, the cases were reviewed and the results
were compared with conventional surgical procedure and finally it was concluded
that Uttarbasti is an excellent therapy for urethral stricture.
