This research was carried out to investigate the impact of treatment parameter on blood flow in an atherosclerotic artery by formulating a momentum equation governing the flow in dimensional form which was scaled to dimensionless form using some important scaling parameters. The equation was solved analytical and obtained velocity profile, thereafter the volumetric flow rate, shear stress were calculated analytically and some pertinent physical parameters were obtained, finally Mathematica codes were developed to simulation the analytical results by varying the pertinent parameters to investigate the influence of the physical parameters on the blood flow profile, volumetric flow rate and the shear stress. In conclusion, it is seen that some of the pertinent parameters RT, Re, Da, M, ω, δ caused the flow to improve while the others did not, taken t=5 seconds. This research is very helpful in providing an insight of the treatment excessive intake of fatty substance.
