Medical question: death by evisceration?


Theoretically, if you hung someone from the ceiling by the wrists and then cut their abdominal cavity partly or fully open, without cutting any major arteries, how long would it take them to die? Minutes, hours, days?

And would the level of pain be enough to render such a victim unable to speak?

(I'm scribbling a medieval-analogue fantasy novel with a really nasty Vlad the Impaler wannabe, if you're curious.)
