About this book

Emergency Abdominal Surgery is a battlefield for the surgeon - providing character-building experiences, and opportunities for triumph and disaster. In the second edition of this 'simple' book emergency abdominal surgery is discussed in an informal and no nonsense fashion - as practiced in the 'trenches' of the ER and the OR. The preferred approach for a given situation is discussed in context; it has to fulfill certain prerequisites: save live, decrease morbidity, be cost effective and be performed correctly.

Review of the 1st Edition:

'What makes this book very readable are the 'pregnant' citations, aphorisms and 'smart savings', which are often heard at the bedside and operation rooms but almost never reach the pages of a book'. (P. Klein, Chirurg, 2000). ' This is written with short punchy chapters making it very difficult to put down....'. (R A B Wood, Journal Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, 2000) ' Since Mondor's times in the forties of the last century there was no other book in surgery to be written so easy and witty...' (Boris D. Savchuk, World Journal of Surgery, 2002).

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book covers emergency abdominal surgery in a useful and interesting way. … a small and handy book yet the coverage is wide. It would be of interest to any general surgeon and should certainly be read by surgical trainees. … allows mention of many things which would otherwise be excluded from a more rigidly structured work. … I was also glad to be reminded of many things which I had known but forgotten. The writers clearly know what they are talking about." (David Evans, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 87, 2005)

"The book covers every aspect of emergency abdominal surgery … . a source of wisdom for the surgical trainee. But also a senior surgeon will enjoy reading this book, as it casts a different light … . It is a great book, full of everyday knowledge and offers a straightforward approach to common clinical problems. It should be compulsatory reading for every surgical trainee, and also sit on the shelve next to the classics of every surgeon involved in abdominal emergency surgery." (Dr. Jan Dewaele, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 105 (2), 2005)
