A mathematical model for pulsatile flow of blood in a catheterized artery in presence of an axisymmetric stenosis with a velocity slip at the constricted wall is proposed. The expressions for the flow characteristics, velocity profiles, the flow resistance, the wall shear stress, the effective viscosity are obtained in the present analysis. The effects of slip velocity on the blood flow characteristics are shown graphically and discussed briefly.
