Abstract: Laser Doppler anemometer (LDA) experiments were performed to gain quantitative information on the differences between the large-scale flow phenomena in a non-stenosed and a stenosed model of the carotid artery bifurcation. The influence of the presence of the stenosis was compared to the effect of flow pulse variation to evaluate the feasibility of early detection of stenosis in clinical practice. Three-dimensional Plexiglass models of a non-stenosed and a 25% stenosed carotid artery bifurcation were perfused …
