Interfacing with a standard JVM entails beneets not enjoyed by the alternate \standalone" approach;(More)
BACKGROUND Single-incision laparoscopy (SIL) has been developed to reduce surgical trauma, whereas technical difficulties in bleeding control limit the broad acceptance for hepatectomy. A novel minimized invasive strategy combining inline radiofrequency pre-coagulation and transumbilical SIL is presented herein. METHODS A cohort of 21 selected patients(More)
This article demonstrates how the User Requirements Notation (URN) can be used to model business processes. URN combines goals and scenarios in order to help capture and reason about user requirements prior to detailed design. In terms of application areas, this emerging standard targets reactive systems in general, with a particular focus on(More)
