as a podiatrist i appreciate the usefulness of debridement and the difficulty in managing chronic wounds which do not appear to heal at all. However my concerns are with treating neuropathic ulceration on the foot and the larvae being squashed as the patient leaves the clinic obviously one would pad the foot to remove the pressure so the patient wouldnt walk on the area but in practice how well does this work?
