Table 3 The treatment time of cryosurgery when the minimum temperature of the bifurcated artery surface approaches to the freezing temperature (T = 0 °C) according to different cryoprobe positions and inlet velocities of artery root

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