This work provides a graphic description of the time course of hemostasis tests results during spontaneous evolution of Echis envenoming and correction of hemostasis disorders with antivenom therapy. The dynamics of fibrinogenemia (g L(-1)), prothrombin time (PT, %), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT, patient/normal ratio) and platelet count (Giga L(-1)) were collected from coagulopathic envenomed patients of a 12 years prospective study in Africa. Sixty patients were included. 47 of… CONTINUE READING
