For the 20th edition of this classic text, Silen has expanded his discussion of the role of CT scans in diagnosing abdominal pain and cut the material on such obsolete procedures or nosologic entities as abdominal paracentesis, pyplyositis, and Bornholm's disease. The book continues to be the outstanding guide to the difficult task of diagnosing and deciding how to manage acute abdominal pain, where decisions must be made quickly and mistakes can kill patients. More generally, it remains the most venerable of all texts on the art and science of bedside diagnosis.

reviews from previous editions:
"This latest edition of the Cope-Silen text on the acute abdomen nicely closes out the 20th-century information base on this subject. Hopefully, the health care providers of the 21st century will continue to profit from the important updating of this classic monograph" The New England Journal of Medicine
"If only one book about surgery could be made available to physicians from all specialties, it should probably be Silen's recent revision of Cope's Early Diagnosis of the acute Abdomen. Since the book first appeared more than 30 years ago, it has remained the classic treatise on the initial approach to abdominal pain...It is important that this classic surgical education be updated periodically, for it is the single best short treatise on acute abdominal pain in print." The New England Journal of Medicine
"There is a lot of very useful information stuffed into these...pages, and very little has been left out....It succeeds because of its directness and practicality...The book is thorough, clear, concise, and has a defite point of view. It is a wonderful text for medical students and interns, especially primary care interns and residents who want a straightforward, clinically relevant resource...It would also make a useful review for practitioners who want to refresh their knowledge. This text should also be a must for emergency department physicians, and all family practice faculty who are confronted with ubiquitous questions from students and residents about patients with abdominal pain..." The Journal of Family Practice
"A model of simplicity, lucidity, and soundness and the language is a joy...Easy to read and full of good sense, the book is a distillation of the massive clinical experience of two master surgeons." Annals of Surgery
"Throughout its 26 concise chapters, Silen has taken great care to preserve the original prose of the early 20th century, making reading of this text enjoyable as well as instructive. This comprehensive work remains a medical classic and is recommended to medical students and residents seeking to achieve a solid foundation in the early diagnosis of acute abdominal pain. Most importantly, even the experienced clinician will be reminded of the importance of clinical acumen in assessing the acute abdomen and will be sure to find sections within this text that will influence his or her clinical practice." -- D. Brock Vair, MD, CJS, Vol 43, Mo 6, Dec 2000
