ABSTRACT

A method is presented by which maggots may be raised for use in a hospital or private practice.

Very little time is required in culture and growth of maggots by this method.

The expense for equipment is almost negligible since most of the apparatus is home-made.

If the maggots are properly applied, any slight discomfort to the patient is easily controlled.

If proper drainage is maintained, the maggots do not die in the wound.

Secondary closure of the wounds, after the bone is covered with granulation tissue, is advisable if the wounds are extensive or in a position exposed to trauma.
