Larval debridement therapy: Traumatic injury management

1 January 2014

In the UK, patients with life-threatening injuries, often with associated complex open fractures, are now predominantly managed in major trauma centres. Larval debridement therapy (LDT) can be an integral part of managing the traumatic wounds that present in these centres.

LDT has been used effectively in wound care for a number of years as a method of debridement and has a number of advantages. This supplement explores those advantages in traumatic haematoma wounds, complex traumatic wounds and burns, presenting the research along side practical tips for clinical decision-making and practice.
