Prediction of the Characteristics of Biological Tissue Being Destroyed with a Local Cryoaffection

Part of the A Cryogenic Engineering Conference Publication book series (ACRE, volume 41)


The report presents the technique, calculation results and diagrams which allow to determine the interrelations between such parameters of cryogenic action as the time period, rate of cooling of the frozen phase, the relation between the depth of proposed necrosis and the depth of the frozen tissue, and the size of the cryoprobe and its surface temperature. The results of simulation are in good agreement with the data obtained during cryotherapy applications carried out at a zoological clinic.
