Analytical Study of Sringataka Marma

Jain Nishi, Yadav Sunil Kumar, Dr Janinjith

Abstract


Sringataka, one among the Urdhvajatru Marma deserves special importance as it is related with all the sense organs. It is explained as the network of Siras providing nourishment to sense organs namely tongue, eyes, nose and ears. Prognostically it is a Sadya-Prana-hara Marma (injury causes immediate death), numerically quadrupled and metrically Panitala (6-7 cm.). On the basis of review of classical literature, modern literature, books, thesis, journals articles and internet materials, it is concluded that Sringataka Marma structurally may be the region of conchae-middle and inferior taken together and functionally with pterygopalatine fossa and cavernous sinus. Further, the regions of pterygopalatine fossa, cavernous sinus, nasal conchae, middle cranial fossa and thalamus can be taken for correlation with Sringataka Marma.

 

Keywords: Cavernous sinus, Conchae, pterygopalatine fossa, Sringataka Marma.
