Languages of publication
Guardianship courts seem to issue decisions in case of the need to obtain consent for surgery, amongst other things, when the patient is unable to consciously express written consent, and at the same time does not have a legal representative or a statutory representative does exist, but settlement with him is impossible. The presented study case demonstrated the abnormalities of applying court procedures, as well as the responsibilities and dilemmas posed in front of a surgeon. A specialist surgeon wanted to help the patient and he was able to accomplish his mission.
