Chikitsaa Prakaara: Sandhaana (Approximation)

Prakaara Paribhaashaa:

  • ºÉÆvÉÉxɨÉ µÉhÉÉè¹`ÉÊnù ºÉƪÉÉäVÉxɨÉ *                   D`alhan`a
  • Approximation of the wound edges is termed as Sandhaana.
  • The process to control bleeding is also termed as Sandhaana.


  • Sandhaana is achieved by Seevana (Suturing).
  • When suturing is not possible then the wound edges are to be approximated and Bandha should be applied.
  • When Maamsa is protruding through the wound it should be cut before approximation.
  • The tying of bleeders (in surgical procedures) to control bleeding also comes under this procedure.
