Abstract

A mathematical model of blood flow through stenotic artery is considered. A stenosis is defined as the partial occlusion of the blood vessels due to the accumulation of cholesterols, fats and the abnormal growth of tissue on the artery walls. The development of stenosis in the artery is one of the factors that cause problem in blood circulation system. This study was conducted to determine the wall shear stress of blood flow in stenosed artery. Modified mathematical model is used to analyze the relationship of the wall shear stress versus the length and height of stenosis. The existing models that have been created by previous researchers are solved using fourth order Runge-Kutta method. Numerical results show that the wall shear stress is proportionate to the length and height of stenosis.
