Hi Again:

Ok...what I know from the general discussions on this website & others in the never ending debate regarding Venomoids. The gland & ducts are removed through an incision in the roof of the mouth overlying the anatomical location of the duct & gland. The tissue is removed and a implant, glass, teflon or other inert material fills the void preventing the shrunken head syndrome you mention. The proceedure is repeated on the other side.

I might also be worth mentioning that in Elapids you need to get ALL of the gland & duct out, so it does not grow back; creating an ugly but well deserved suprise!
