The use of maggots in medicine is neither a medieval torture or a new invention. Maggots are actually regulated by the FDA as medical devices. Maggots feed on dead tissue, effectively cleaning away tissue that is not healing and may be harboring harmful bacteria.
This is a process that is referred to as debridement.
Maggot debridement therapy is often used where other therapies have failed.
