Medical books are a set of facts which with each new reading give a different view of 
the observed changes. Small changes are important. Medicine is changing slowly but 
constantly. Same is with all new editions of books on medicine; the book is getting 
better every time and provides more. A series of small changes in all aspects of 
medicine leads to significant changes. To understand these changes, they should be 
constantly monitored.
Our task is to enable that knowledge and new information from this field become 
instantly available to a wider range of doctors and other medical professionals. I hope 
this book will provide greater visibility and access to detection and treatment of 
vulnerable patients.
I wish to express my gratitude to everyone for their effort and time, helping with 
valuable facts and opinions, thus making possible for this book to be published. 
Colleagues, using this edition, we meet the requirements of our responsible and hard, 
but human calling.
