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 life, decrease morbidity, be cost effective and be performed correctly.

Reviews 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)

- Written in an easy-to-read tone, concise and to the point.

- Assembled during 20 years of intensive involvement, both clinical and academic, in emergency abdominal surgery. 

- An extensive list of international contributors, including surgeons from Mount Sinai (NY) and Albert Einstein (NY).
