Stroke is not a disease in itself but is heterogeneous group of disorders. Hemiplegia is one of the most frequent clinical presentations of stroke (CVA). Pakshaghata is clearly correlated with hemiplegia according to signs and symptoms described in various Ayurvedic literatures. Though ample research is being carried out for alleviating the disease and new avenues are being explored for treating early ischemic injury, yet the disease still remains incurable. In this study the line of treatment for Pakshaghata i.e. Virechana Karma as mentioned by Charaka has been studied. Basti Karma, the first line of treatment for Vata Vyadhi like Pakshaghata was selected for the study. After the completion of the study, comparative admirable results were observed by Basti Karma in contrast to Virechana Karma.
