A cholesterol embolism occurs when cholesterol crystals break off an atherosclerotic plaque and travel throughout the body until they become lodged in the blood stream, obstructing blood flow and promoting inflammation. This causes discomfort and possible organ failure. Cholesterol embolisms frequently occur in the eye, legs, and kidneys, but can happen anywhere around the body. There is no distinct therapy for cholesterol embolisms and anti-inflammatory treatments are not proven to be helpful. Therefore, current treatments focus on relieving symptoms of cholesterol embolisms.
