Project Description

In this illustration; the Maggot Therapy, a treatment method using fly larvae for repairing non-healing open-wounds, was described. In a cage, the chosen appropriate fly larvae are fed by dissolving necrotic tissues with proteolytic enzymes, without damaging live tissues. To emphasize the necessity of the “biobag” method performed by the larvae in a tulle; the disadvantages of the cage method such as “the larvaes leaving the area of the wound” and “the larvaes creeping on the wound” were emphasized. To proceed the lesson with the “biobag method”, this illustration will be used as a transition illustration. To be able to attract the interest of medical students and to increase the memorability of the subject, it was drawn in a cartoonized form and it is given place to funny details.
