The present paper, consider a pulsatile fluid flow of blood in a circular tube with permeable wall of varying cross-section has been investigatation of non- Newtonian biviscous incompressible fluid. The governing equations are solved by perturbation scheme. The results are depicts of wall shear stress and pressure drop have been discussed and shown graphically of suction and injection.
