hE green pit viper-Trimel'esurus eryth;. rurus (TE) and Trimeresurus popeorum (TP) -is responsible for most of the cases of snakebite admitted to the hospitals of Bangkok. Since its venom is predominantly hematotoxic, a bite typically induces a systemic hemorrhagic disorder with bleeding both in the local area and from remote mucosal and serosal surfaces. This report describes the clinical and extended coagulation findings in 20 bitten children, who were studied intensively to determine the… 

Green pit viper (Trimeresurus albolabris and T. macrops) venom antigenaemia and kinetics in humans

The long half-life of the venom was demonstrated, suggesting that waiting for spontaneous resolution of coagulopathy is not preferable, and the delayed venom disappearance, not the initial values, was correlated with haemostatic disorders.

Prognostic factors of green pit viper bites.

The predictors of systemic bleeding were the combination of thrombocytopenia and prolonged venous clotting time and bite sites away from digits, and negative skin test results do not exclude the possibility of antivenin allergy.

Significant decreased total platelet count and mean platelet volume were demonstrated in envenomous blood and the changes in blood cells may be partly due to the effect of green pit viper toxin on the platelet morphology.

Effect of gaboon viper (Bitis gabonica) venom on blood coagulation, platelets, and the fibrinolytic enzyme system

The results confirm that the venom of Bitis gabonica has a marked anticoagulant action in vitro and appears to impair clot formation by a direct proteolytic action on fibrinogen, releasing soluble breakdown products.

The venom resembles tissue thromboplastin in requiring Factor V but appears to require phospholipid, and the reduction of this factor in the Stuart-Prower clotting defect being recognized and measured by delayed clotting with the venom.

The method is a modification of the classical Factor VII complex assay, using a Russell’s viper venom (Stypven)-cephalin reagent instead of brain thromboplastin, and has proved most valuable in the detection of heterozygous Stuart-Prower factor deficiencies.
