Author : Dr. Subhash Y. Raut, Dr. Prashant L. Rasale

Cissus quadrangularis has been used by ancient period for promotion of fracture healing and well known as “Hadjod”. A vast drug review shows that this drug also possess analgesic activity. Various animal studies reports are available over this analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity of drug Cissus quadrangularis. The analgesic effect of this plant when used in bone fractures may be of great value in relief of pain which is a constant feature in these cases. As it compared well with acetyl salicylic acid in its analgesic response, the nature of its chemically active constituents needs to be explored .The pain VAS is a unidimensional measure of pain intensity which has been widely used in diverse adult populations. Our main purpose was to evaluate the analgesic property of this drug in patients of bone fracture having pain and secondary objective was to prepare a scientific, valid document over analgesic property of present drug in terms of visual analogue score. It is seen that drug Cissus quadrangularis has significant impact over pain in terms of VAS so it can be used as analgesic agent in various painful conditions.
