Marma Sharir is one of the special aspects intensely elaborated by Ayurveda. Marma are vital points on the body having importance regarding traumatic effect. As per the context, these points when exposed to trauma generate the symptoms as like pain, disability or death. Hence, these points should be protected from injury. In present era, in spite of availability of various treatment modalities, the formation of various type of deformity occur due to traumatic lesion of elbow joint in most of the cases which remains permanent in nature even after application of well established treatment. But if collaborative approach of Marmachikitsa (treating Marma i.e. affected vital part of the body) is applied in such cases it may help to overcome or diminish the occurrence of such deformities. But many symptoms which are explained in Marmabhighata i.e. various injuries to Marma are quite vague in nature and critical to understand which restricts its practical utility in diagnosis. Many terminologies are yet to be established in terms of contemporary symptoms for its better and easy understanding. So it is the need of hour to study of vital structures at Kurpar Marma, type of Vaikalyakara Marma for ruling causative pathophysiology behind formation of such deformities and to minimize their occurrence in future by discovering its applied aspect
