Abstract

Incidence and the prevalence rate of stroke in the United States has been of great concern to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the American Society of Stroke, American Stroke Association and the U.S. government as a whole; Many mathematical models of the stroke problem have been proposed and solved using diverse methods and computations. Most of the models are based on the stenoses, occlusion or rupture of the artery and the formation of cerebral aneurysms, which all lead to the occurrence of stroke; This paper utilizes a direct approach to change the motion and the continuity equation of the blood flow to a Bessel equation and then solve to obtain the properties of the blood under stenoses. The model is pertinent to the stenoses of the artery, which occurs as a result of debris in the blood stream, fatty deposits (lipids), cholesterol, a calcium deposit or a blood clot.
