Ashmari (urolithiasis) is third most common and distressing affliction of the urinary tract. It have peculiar tendency of recurrence even after surgery. The causes and mechanism of their formation is still obscure but various factors like age, sex, irregular food habit, metabolic disorders, sedentary life style, occupation, hydration status, nutritional deficiency, geography etc. may be responsible for the formation of stone. Detailed description of Ashmari is the specific contribution of Acharya Sushruta and he included it in the "Eight Mahagada". It may be owing to its potentiality to disturb the anatomy and physiology of urinary system. Total 29 patients with classical signs and symptoms with confirmed diagnosis by USG of KUB were treated in three divided groups for 60 days. 10 patients were treated with Tiladi Kshara, 500mg 1 capsule twice daily orally, 10 patients were treated with Varunadi Ghrita, 10gm twice daily orally and 9 patients were treated with Swarjika Kshara (as a control group), 500mg 1 capsule twice daily orally. After completion of trial for 60 days, it was observed that Varunadi Ghrita has provided highly significant relief in pain, burning micturition, dysuria, and haematuria whereas Tiladi Kshara has provided highly significant relief in pain, burning micturion and dysuria and Swarjika Kshara has provided highly significant relief in burning micturition only. After careful observation it can be concluded that Varunadi Ghrita possesses the properties to disintegration and expulsion of stone and can produce better relief in signs and symptoms of Ashmari than Tiladi Kshara.
