Abstract: This study evaluated the use of fibrin glue derived from snake venom in the healing process after canine hysterorrhaphy. Three groups of four animals were submitted to uterine hysterotomy followed by wound closure. In Group 1, double-layer suture was used, the first with Schimieden pattern, the second with Cushing pattern; in Group 2, only fibrin glue; and in Group 3, the same as for Group 1 but with fibrin glue as suture reinforcement. Results indicated that fibrin glue produced less inflammation in the exuda… Show more

“…20,21 Snake-derived fibrin gel also stimulates granulation tissue and does not trigger a strong inflammatory response. 13 In our study, the rapid and normal generation of fibrocartilage, which completely filled the injury site in G2, showed the inert or beneficial effects of the gel implantation; however, detailed studies and quantitative analysis of innate and adaptive immunological response are still required, at different time points after implantation.…”

“…1,11 The fibrin gel obtained from the venom of the Crotalus durissus terrificus snake, a rattlesnake, contains serinoprotease, a protein in the venom that has been characterized as thrombin-like and acts in a similar manner as thrombin. 12 In fact, this snake-derived fibrin gel has been used as a hemostatic agent to improve the healing of tissues, [13][14][15] and this formulation seems to presents all of the beneficial characteristics that accompany the common fibrin sealant.…”
