Embolism is defined as the obstruction of a blood vessel by a clump of material, such as a broken-off piece of plaque, a blood clot or air bubble, travels through the bloodstream and becomes lodged in a blood vessel. Depending on the size of the embolism and which blood vessel it is obstructing, the result can range from no symptoms whatsoever to a life-threatening emergency.
