Knowledge of wound healing is the basic requirement of surgery; invariably an incidental wound is caused which may sometimes lead to ulceration. The success or failure of a surgical treatment depends upon an apparently small, unimportant and innocent incidental wound. The wound, thus decides the fate of the post operative patient. Innovative combination of drugs having wound healing property was formulated and assigned name as Jati Kalpa Ghrita. Total 110 patients were registered in the present trial. In Group A, out of 75 patients, 8 discontinued and in Group B, 5 patients discontinued out of 35.
