Table 2 The iceball volume (T = 0 °C) and the lethal volume (T = − 40 °C) for different inlet velocity with the same cryoprobe position Ld = 30 mm and freezing time t = 20 min

From: Computational study of the effects of arterial bifurcation on the temperature distribution during cryosurgery

Inlet velocity (m/s) V = 0.01 V = 0.05 V = 0.10 V = 0.20 V = 0.30
Iceball volume (cm3) 44.32 42.59 42.00 41.90 41.83
Lethal volume (cm3) 8.56 8.41 8.35 8.33 8.32
