چکیده انگلیسی
Sri Lanka comprises of a well-established traditional orthopedic treatment system. A 14 year old child had a compound fracture over shaft of humerus. The internal fixator Kirschner (k) wire was applied following allopathic treatment and after three weeks, it was removed as there was no healing of wound over fracture site. Patient was asked to follow orthopedic clinic but defaulted and presented to Ayurveda management. X-ray reports showed nonunion of the humerus. Initially, nonunion bone was immobilized for six months using bamboo splints. Prior to applying the splints, during every visit, herbal oil and herbal paste were applied. Subsequently up to six months, motor, sensory functions assessment and quality of life (QoL) assessment was done using Quality of Life of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (QLIOF) questionnaire. Initial power of wrist and fingers were graded 1 and in 6- months time, improved to grade 5. The difference in the QLIOF scores were analyzed using Wilcoxon signed rank test. There was a significant (p = 0.03) difference between the pre-treatment (14) and post-treatment (59) QLIOF scores. The anterior- posterior and lateral X-ray showed complete healing of the fracture. This report indicates that the methods and medicines in Ayurveda and traditional orthopedic system can successfully treat a nonunion of humerus fracture.
