This case study deals with some of the issues that need to be considered in the assessment of a patient who requires surgical intervention for an acute abdominal problem. The case is a continuation of 'A 41-year-old man with sudden onset of upper abdominal pain' and it is suggested that case should be studied before proceeding with this one.
