Coagulopathy following snakebite typically occur within 24 h. Occasionally, abnormality of the coagulation system persists into the second week; although clinically, significant bleeding is rare after seven days. Early coagulopathy and concurrent acute renal failure tends to increase the odd of delayed coagulopathy. We report a case of delayed coagulopathy and renal failure occurring after 2 weeks in a previously... Read more.

Several studies have described the biceps brachii muscle as one of the muscles in the upper limb with most frequent anatomical variations. They also reported the presence of this anomaly in varying frequency in different populations. The aim of this study was to assess the anatomical description of the third head of biceps brachii muscle and its abnormal innervation in human autopsies which would be of value for the... Read more.

Treatment failure or tolerance, which rapidly leads to a reduced hemodynamic effects and therapeutic efficacy is the major limitation of long-term use of nitrates, including nitroglycerin (NTG) in the treatment of coronary artery disease. These effects are most often associated with oxidative stress. Thus, in this work, we were interested in the prevention of nitrate tolerance by the antioxidant compounds... Read more.
