During my medical studies at university, the true, decisive and fatal crossroad of my life came into the picture: the dissection room. That space destined my future life career and medical specialization. Fascination by the hidden corners and nooks of the human body led me to my future teaching and scienti fi c way of life. The driving force of my effort was the desire to mediate the knowledge to students in an easily accessible and gripping manner. Whenever I saw a light of cognition in my students’ eyes, my endeavor came to fruiti on. The result of my effort is this book. Although it pulled me away from my children a bit, it became a kind of my child itself.
