Challinor, T: Wounds Essentials: Uncovering the evidence on larval therapy

Wound Essentials 7: Uncovering the evidence on larval therapy

Congratulations to Thomas Challinor, a 3rd year medical student from Chester University who wrote this article to ‘critically review the evidence for the use of larval therapy in the management of chronic wounds.’

The history of larval therapy and its advantages and disadvantages in clinical practice will be analysed, along with staff and patient attitudes to the technique.  Recommendations for improving clinical practice will be drawn from the literature.
