Abstract :

Sushrut Samhita – An Ayurvedic classical text is basically a surgical text. Sushruta Samhita is the oldest available text on surgery in the world dating back to a time between 300 to 3000 B.C. Gulpha Sandhi is the structure well described in Sushrut samhita under the topic of Sandhi Sharira. Gulpha Sandhi (Ankle Joint) is chief joint of lower extremities which mainly associates with the locomotion and balances the weight of body. Now-a-days Sport injuries and accidental injuries to the Gulpha Sandhi are commonly found. As Gulpha Sandhi is a location of Gulpha Marma, it should be protected. Therefore from this point of view Surgeon or Physician should have a good knowledge of Gulpha Sandhi and related structures.
