WHAT DOES EMBOLUS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Embolus

An embolus is any detached, traveling intravascular mass carried by circulation, which is capable of clogging arterial capillary beds at a site distant from its point of origin. Illustration depicting embolism from detached thrombus By contrast there are non-traveling blockages that develop locally from vascular trauma or epithelial pathology and vascular inflammation — like atheroma, thrombi. However, if a thrombus breaks loose from its genesis site it becomes a thrombo-embolus and if not broken down during transit, may cause embolism. The term was coined in 1848 by Rudolf Virchow.
