Vrana is the most important term in the field of Shalya Tantra. Here all the types of Shalya and Shastra karma are lastly result into the formation of the Vrana. The detail description of Vrana is available in the Sushruta Samhita, Charka Samhita, Ashtang Sangraha and Ashtang Hridaya i.e., Brihatrayees. These primary literary sources of Ayurveda described Vrana, their Nidan, Samprapti (etio-pathogenesis) and systematic classification and along with their management including various drug preparations.

Acharya Sushrut Samhita was specialized in Shalya Tantra, during this time the knowledge of Vrana was on its peak, the concept of Vrana forms the central theme of Sushruta Samhita, As emphasized while giving the definition of Shalya Tantra, Acharya’s says Tantras in which knowledge of various Shalya, Vrana srava, and dushtavrana along with three stages of Vrana sopha was dealt with Shalya Tantra1 And therefore Acharya Sushruta provides more extensive details on Vrana from various prospective, described various clinical presentations deepely, pathogenesis and very important sixty essential procedures for the management of Vrana.

Management of Vrana with topical antibiotics is the most conventional method but due to topical antibiotics eschars is separated late, as well as re-epithelialisation and formation of granulation tissues also delayed/or hypergranulations takes place especially in full thickness injuries. The Vrana are treated with growth factors and collagens in the recent era, but the carcinogenesis is one of the major unwanted side-effect of these agents. Medical practitioners are using a number of dressings to heal such wounds, namely absorptive, collagen, anti-microbial, foams, wound filters, hydrogels, composites, contact layers, etc. An Indian medical science was evolved and developed. The detailed description of Vrana and its management was elaborated in the different Ayurvedic texts, Going through these Samhita; about 164 medicinal plants, 24 metals and minerals, and 18 animal products are describe for their wound healing activity and these are termed as Vranaropaka, Vranapaha and Vranya 8.
