Interesting → Maggots help to heal wounds quicker

Maggot therapy (also known as Maggot Debridement Therapy (MDT), larval therapy, larva therapy, or larvae therapy) is a type of biotherapy involving the intentional introduction by a health care practitioner of live, disinfected maggots (fly larvae) into the non-healing skin and soft tissue wound(s) of a human or animal for the purpose of selectively cleaning out only the necrotic (dead) tissue within a wound in order to promote wound healing. Maggot therapy has been shown to accelerate debridement of necrotic wounds and reduce the bacterial load of the wound, leading to earlier healing, reduced wound odor and less pain.

In a 2007 preliminary trial, maggots were used to successfully treat patients with the superbug MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a bacteria which has developed antibiotic resistance to all penicillins. The current use of maggot therapy is estimated to involve over 3,000 doctors, clinics, and hospitals in over 20 countries. In 2003, approximately 30,000 treatments were administered to an estimated 6,000 to 10,000 patients.

I wonder why this therapy isn't used in the U.S. (to my knowledge) against such as "snake bite", etc...
