Abstract

Thromboangitis Obliterans (TAO) is a non atherosclerotic inflammatory disorder of unknown aetiology that affect small and medium-sized vessels of the extremities and has a strong association with smoking. The incidence is more in population who are under 45 years of age, current or recent history of tobacco use. It is noticed by presence of distal-extremity ischemia indicated by claudication, pain at rest, ischemic ulcers or gangrene. In the management of TAO various drugs like Analgesics, Vasodilators, Anticoagulants have been tried with questionable value which have drawbacks like bleeding tendencies, systemic adverse effects and most of the times the disease ends up with major or minor amputations. Hence in TAO, a holistic, natural mode of management under the Vatarakta line of treatment is to be adopted. Even though Vatarakta management encompasses wide range of treatment modalities; Basti is exemplarily useful.
