In the paper we have focused the effect of Hematocrit on flow parameters, such as resistance, frictional resistance, and skin friction due to stenosis in the artery taking blood as non-Newtonian fluid. It has been found that resistance increases with the increasing of hematocrit level and stenosis height. It is also shown that a skin-friction increase with increasing of stenosis height and decreases with the decreasing of stenosis height. Moreover the effect of stenosis shape parameter is
