ABSTRACT

In this paper, blood flow in abdominal aortic artery which is affected by acute stenosis is simulated numerically. Computational analysis of variations in the blood flow due to anti-platelet drug are studied by applying different densities. Analysis is done using softwares Gambit and Fluent. The results of this study help us to visualise the consequences of acute stenosis before and after treatment. The simulation results may provide important guidance for treatments for stenosis and surgical interventions that seek to improve blood flow in affected arteries
