Abstract: The changed flow pattern in a narrow catheterized artery is studied and an estimate of the increased flow resistance is made. The anomalous behaviour of blood in small blood vessels has been taken into account by modelling blood as a Casson fluid possessing some finite yield stress. Both the cases of steady and pulsatile flow situations are studied. The pulsatile flow is analysed by considering the pressure gradient as a periodic function of time with small inertial effects. The resulting quasi-steady non-line…
