Abstract

Maggot therapy is a kind of biological therapy that uses maggot to eat and remove the necrotic tissue of wounds, while it has no adverse effect on living tissue with blood supply. Besides, maggot therapy can promote wound healing through various mechanisms, which has been used for debridement and treatment of wounds as early as hundreds of years ago. With the discovery and application of antibiotics, maggot therapy faded out of the medical field once. However, with the abuse of antibiotics and increasing drug resistance of bacteria in recent years, maggot therapy attracts widespread attention of clinicians again. This article reviews the advances in the application of maggot therapy in chronic wounds.
