] Technically, bloodletting is still practiced. I do believe it was still a common thig to do up through the 1890's, though don't quote me on that. Recently, studies have shown that bloodletting actually works in some situations. Go figure! You won't catch me doing it though.
Leaches are also making a minor medical comeback. Apparently there are uses for the anti-coagulant that they secrete to make people bleed.
