An embolism (plural embolisms; from the Greek ?????????? ""insertion"") is the event of lodging of an embolus into a narrow capillary vessel of an atrerial bed which causes a blockage in a distant part of the body. Embolization is a procedure that purposely creates such a lodging and occlusion of specific blood vessels with thrombo-emboli in order to deprive tumors (or other pathologic processes) of their perfusion (blood supply).
