    Abstract [en]

    Background: Larval therapy is an alternative treatment method in wound healing. Wound healing with larvae has occurred for more than 70 years. The introduction of antibiotics decreased larval therapy, but though there are problems with the resistance of antibiotics, larval therapy returned. The objective of this study was to highlight the impact of larval therapy for chronic leg ulcers.  Method: An integrative literature study was performed based on two qualitative and seven quantitative scientific articles.  Results: The impacts of the leg ulcers that were highlighted were physiological such as debridement and healing, also the experience of larval therapy such as pain, feelings of discomfort and wound odor. The study showed that the debridement in leg ulcers with larval therapy gave better results than hydrogel treatment. The larvae debrided necrotic tissue from the wounds and decreased the wound dramatically. Remarkably, six out of nine studies mentioned pain as a big factor during treatment but the acceptance of larval therapy was beyond expectation. Although some patients were reluctant to try larval therapy, most patients were willing to go through with the treatment. Larval therapy improved the wellbeing of patients and if pain occurred during larval therapy patients were motivated with information and were relieved with painkillers so the total time of healing was shortened.
