This paper introduces the universal mobile interface that allows users to navigate themselves into multiple heterogeneous digital cites with a single interface. The universal mobile interface connects a map-based information search system, an image-based virtual city space, and a 3D virtual city space, that had been developed independently. A user can(More)
In this article, we report a rare case of rectal obstruction caused by bilateral internal iliac artery aneurysms that required open surgical repair.
