MAGGOT THERAPY: Technique and Clinical Application.

We have developed a technique of maggot culture and application which we believe greatly simplifies maggot therapy.

With this technique, one worker can rear enough maggots to treat some fifty patients at one time.

By means of cages such as we suggest, maggots may be confined to any type of wound on the exterior of the body.

Maggot-treated wounds need attention only once or twice in twenty-four hours, dependent drainage not being necessary.

If our methods are followed, the maggots will not die in the wounds.
