Acute arterial embolism

Acute arterial embolism refers to the thrombus from the heart, proximal arterial wall, or other sources rushing into and embolizing the branch artery with smaller diameter at the distal end with arterial blood flow, and then causing the ischemia and necrosis of the blood supplying organs or limbs of this artery, which is mostly seen in the lower limbs. In severe cases, it will eventually lead to amputation.
