A method and system memory to store a logical process model defining a logically structured series of process activities in a process, and Service Level Agreement (SLA) profile information defining a pre-defined plurality of SLA profiles which are potentially applicable to respective process instances. Each SLA profile comprises at least one performance metric with respect to the process and/or at least one of the process activities. A rules engine queries case data with respect to a particular process instance, and automatically determines an applicable SLA profile based on the case data. The applicable SLA profile is then applied to the particular process instance, and may be altered during performance of the process instance in response to case data changes.

A method and system comprises a duplication identifier module to analyze data input information to automatically identify duplicate expected inputs associated with a process. The system includes logical process model information defining a logically structured series of process activities and data input information representing a plurality of expected inputs associated with respective process activities, with each expected input being indicative of expected collection of a corresponding data element during execution of the associated process activity. Each duplicate expected input comprises one of the plurality of expected inputs for which there is at least one other expected input with respect to a common corresponding data element.

Background and objectives: Retro pancreatic invasion is a major concern in pancreatic head carcinoma. Posterior clearance has been recognized as an independent risk factor for disease recurrence and hence patient survival. The aim of this study was to report a standardized method that ensures posterior clearance with Total Mesopancreas Excision (TMpE). Methods: Our procedure consisted in a posterior approach with cranio-caudal dissection at the origin of the superior mesenteric artery and the celiac trunk all along their right semi-circumference. This allowed a complete clearance of retro pancreatic tissues with safe control of pancreaticoduodenal arteries at their origin. Results: Fifty-two consecutive pancreatic resections with TMpE were performed. Sixteen cases were associated to vascular resection. Pathology revealed an adenocarcinoma of the pancreatic duct, distal bile duct, periampullary and neuroendocrine carcinoma. Mesopancreas was invaded by cancer in 12 cases, of these, 3 had invaded margins and 7 had a margin less than 1 mm. Mesopancreas was the only site of tumour infiltration. Applying the International Union Against Cancer criteria, an R0 resection was thus achieved in 42 patients. Conclusion: Our procedure is feasible and safe in experienced hand. It is a description of a standardized method for TMpE that clearly shows an advantage in improving posterior clearance and R0 resection. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
