BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to emphasize that early fasciotomy performed in the treatment of snakebites in the absence of the classic compartment syndrome criteria accelerates the clinical recovery and reduces the progressive tissue damage. METHODS Fourteen patients with snakebite were examined retrospectively. Five of them healed with routine treatments. Six patients who did not respond to the treatment underwent early fasciotomy procedure in 48 hours. All of the patients had… 
Digital necrosis caused by a snake bite
TLDR
A digital necrosis developed in the patient who applied with the complaint of a snake bite on the fourth finger of her left hand has been pointed out.
The management of viper bites on the hand
TLDR
Repetition of antivenom therapy is necessary to decrease the complications rate in patients with venomous snake bites and the use of a peripheral vasodilator may decrease the complication rates in cases where the bite is on the digits.
Minimally Invasive Surgery Using the Circular External Fixator to Correct Neglected Severe Stiff Equinocavus Foot Deformities
TLDR
Evaluating the efficacy of minimally invasive surgery using a circular external fixator and limited soft tissue release to correct stiff equinocavus deformities found it to be a safe initial limb salvage strategy which may simplify secondary procedures such as arthrodesis.
Importance of Neutrophil–Lymphocyte Ratio and Platelet–Lymphocyte Ratio for Determining the Prognosis and Hospitalization Period in Patients with Snakebites
TLDR
The hospitalization period, complication developments, and poor prognosis in snakebites may be predicted using the NLR and PLR values, which are easily available and inexpensive blood parameters.
Diabetic Foot Due to Anaphylactic Shock: A Case Report
TLDR
A 78-year-old male admitted to the Emergency Department, who developed anaphylactic shock and diabetic foot after the snake bite is reported, which is the second reported case of snake bite associated with diabetic foot.
A RETROSPECTIVE STUDY OF 16 CASES OF ACUTE COMPARTMENT SYNDROME FOLLOWING SNAKEBITE
TLDR
This paper aims to provide a history of orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery in Marrakesh and its use in the field of sports medicine and its applications in the context of eSports.
DETERMINATION OF PROGNOSIS OF SNAKE BITE CASES BY NEUTROPHIL-LYMPHOCYTE RATIO AND PLATELET-LYMPHOCYTE RATIO.
TLDR
The hospitalization period, complication developments, and poor prognosis in snakebites may be predicted using the NLR and PLR values, which are easily available and inexpensive blood parameters.
Evaluation of changes in perfusion index in patients with cytotoxic tissue damage after snake bite: A prospective cohort study
TLDR
Ekstremitesinde perfuzyon indeksi (PI) degerindeki degisimlerin olculmesini; etkilenen organdaki erken donem iskemi veya nekrozu tespit etmeyi ayrica verilen antivenomun etkinligini arastirmayi amacladik.

TLDR
Hematological disorders and local wound problems were more prominent with poisonous snake bite cases in the authors' region and it is concluded that these problems can be prevented by using antiserum treatment as early as possible.
A snake in the clinical grass: late compartment syndrome in a child bitten by an adder.
TLDR
A case requiring delayed fasciotomies for closed compartment syndrome of the leg and thigh is described, and the controversies surrounding decompression in such a case are discussed.
A five-year retrospective review of snakebite patients admitted to a tertiary university hospital in Malaysia
TLDR
A retrospective study on snakebite patients admitted to the Emergency Department of Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia from January 2006 to December 2010 found that cobra bites are significantly more likely to result in severe envenomation needing anti-venom administration and more likely in local gangrene.
Lower extremity compartmental syndrome following snake-bite envenomation--one case report.
TLDR
A case where a young child with severe snake bite envenomation who and acute compartmental syndrome who had complete functional recovery following emergent fasciotomy and delayed primary closure is reported.
Epidemiology and hospital course of rattlesnake envenomations cared for at a tertiary referral center in Central Arizona.
TLDR
In Arizona, RSB victims were typically adult males with upper-extremity bites, and no statistically significant difference was detected in frequency of hematologic disorders or local tissue complications when children were compared with adults.
Snakebites in adults from the Diyarbakir region in southeast Turkey.
TLDR
The majority of victims of V. ammodytes poisoning can be treated successfully with conservative methods and the main complications were thrombophlebitis, reduced range of motion, local hemorrhagic blister formation, bleeding from skin, rhabdomyolysis, reduced sensation, acute renal failure, necrosis with tissue loss, digit amputation, carpal tunnel syndrome, and compartment syndrome.
Resolution of compartment syndrome after rattlesnake envenomation utilizing non-invasive measures.
[Acute compartment syndrome following snake bite].
TLDR
Whenever systemic envenomation occurs, antivenin is the treatment of choice and tissue necroses are treated by early debridement and a possible closed compartment syndrome demands the open fasciotomy.
