Wikipedia definition
2. EmbolismIn medicine, an embolism (plural embolisms; from the Greek ἐμβολισμός "insertion") is the event of lodging of an embolus (a detached intravascular mass capable of clogging arterial capillary beds at a site far from its origin) into a narrow capillary vessel of an arterial bed which causes a blockage in a distant part of the body. This is not to be confused with a thrombus which blocks at the site of origin.
