Abstract


Abstract

Sringataka, one among the Urdhva-jatru-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-pranahara-Marma, numerically quadrupled and metrically Panitala. It is a humble attempt to substantiate the anatomical aspect of SringatakaMarma on the basis of various classical references. Classical literature, modern literature, books, thesis, journals articles, internet materials were reviewed for the topic and related information and references were collected and analyzed scientifically. Description of Sringataka in Nasya, Kshavathu and Sandhi are also considered to substantiate the anatomical aspect of Sringataka Marma. Structurally, it can be the region of conchae-middle and inferior taken together and functionally with pterygopalatine fossa and cavernous sinus.

Keywords: Cavernous sinus, Conchae, pterygopalatine fossa, SringatakaMarma.
