Abstract

Background: The debridement of necrotic and infected tissues, which prolong the wound healing process, is important for the preparation of the wound bed. Therefore, wound-bed preparation and debridement are vital components of venous leg ulcer management. We aimed to present a perspective to evaluate the clinical and microbiological efficacy of Maggot Debridement Therapy (MDT) in the treatment of chronic leg ulcers caused by venous insufficiency.
