📙 Maggot Therapy: A Handbook of Maggot-Assisted Wound Healing by Wim Fleischmann, Martin Grassberger, Ronald Sherman — download pdf



Impressive Results for Slow-healing Wounds


An Ancient Treatment - Rediscovered Fly larvae have been used for
centuries to successfully treat wounds. However, once penicillin was discovered,
and antibiotic therapy became common worldwide, maggot therapy was forgotten.
But now that bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to modern antibiotics,
maggot therapy is experiencing a resurgence.


Maggots Promote Healing Fly larvae can debride and help heal chronic wounds
in a form of "biosurgery." As strange as it sounds, maggot therapy is often a
patient's last chance to prevent amputation of a limb. The results of maggot
therapy have been impressive in treating diabetic foot ulcers, slow-healing
wounds resulting from circulatory problems, and pressure sores in bed-bound
patients: over a majority of these wounds - many of them in existence for years
- heal without pain or side effects.


This text contains
extensive, reader-friendly information on maggot therapy. There is an overview
of the pertinent fly species, a history of maggot therapy, and information on
maggots' mode of action and application. In addition to detailed descriptions of
the clinical problems for which maggots can be used, there are case studies and
questions and answers from medical practice.
