Keywords:Vaikalyakar Marma, Sira Marma, Adhoshakhagat Marma, Traumatology, Sakthishosha, Uru
Marma science (traumatology) is a unique specialty of Ayurveda that plays a significant role in surgical procedures and treatments. Acharya Sushruta has described Urvi Marma as part of the Sira marma (a vital point which is vascular in nature), and he has mentioned the traumatic disorders associated with it. In order to apply Acharya Sushruta's invaluable knowledge of Urvi Marma in the current era, it is necessary to precisely correlate his concept of Urvi Marma with present Anatomical perspectives. This research aims to bridge the gap between old wisdom and current science. Material and Methods: A comprehensive review of the literature on the concept of Marma Sharir (traumatology) and Urvi Marma was conducted, taking into account the position of Urvi Marma as told by our ancient experts. The anatomy of the thigh, as well as its application, has been researched through numerous books and dissection.
