Maggot debridement therapy
Maggot therapy is also known as maggot debridement therapy (MDT), larval therapy, larva therapy, larvae therapy, biodebridement or biosurgery. It is a type of biotherapy involving the introduction of live, disinfected maggots (fly larvae) into the non-healing skin and soft tissue wound(s) of a human or animal for the purpose of cleaning out the necrotic (dead) tissue within a wound (debridement) and disinfection. It was long believed that the debridement is selective on necrotic tissue but new literature first questioned that belief. A recent clinical study in France showed non-selectivity of maggot action as wound surface increased over treatment.

Maggot Debridement Therapy - An Outlook
Over the years there has been an increase in the wound care expenditure due to increase in incidence and prevalence of wounds due to aging population, sedentary lifestyle and disorders like obesity etc. Wound treatment ranges from cleaning to wound closure and wound debridement forms an integral part of this process.
