Shalya Tantra is one of the eight branches of Ayurveda. The main literature of Shalya Tantra (Surgery) is Sushruta Samhita. Bandaging is an important part of trauma management; poor bandaging can compromise the whole process of management that can lead to serious consequences. Correct knowledge of the bandaging principle is very much essential for every member of the surgical team. In Ayurveda fifteen types of Bandhana Karma are mentioned out of them Acharya Sushruta has mentioned fourteen Bandhana Karma (bandaging techniques) along with the indication and contraindication of the bandaging and one Utsangi Bandhana Karma mentioned by Acharya Vagbhatta. In the present study, all the techniques are discussed with their importance and relevance in the modern-day surgical environment. In this review study, all the techniques seem still relatable and every surgical team must follow the principle of bandaging laid by Sushruta.
