A brain embolism is a blockage in a blood vessel of the brain due to a blood clot, fat globule, or air bubble. In the case of a blood clot, the brain embolism typically originates in the heart. The embolism causes blood flow to be cut off from a portion of the brain, which results in a loss of oxygen and cell death, and can lead to an ischemic stroke, brain damage affecting physical and cognitive processes, and even death. Symptoms of a brain embolism include headache, blurry vision, and an impairment of muscle control. Immediate treatment must be done to break up the clot, and the source of the clot must be found in order to prevent more from forming.
