Embolism

Occurs when an object migrates from one part of the body (through circulation) and cause(s) a blockage (occlusion) of a blood vessel in another part of the body

Blood clots form the most common embolic material by far: other possible embolic materials include fat globules, air bubbles (an air embolism), septic emboli (containing pus and bacteria), or amniotic fluid.
