Hi,
How is your stepmother? What are the symptoms present? Arterial embolism is a sudden interruption of blood flow to an organ or body part due to a clot It may occur in the legs and feet, as well as brain and heart. This condition requires immediate treatment  and the goals of treatment are to control symptoms and to improve the interrupted blood flow to the affected area of the body. It is also important that the cause of the clot should be treated to prevent further problems such as infection, stroke and even septic shock. Factors such as the medical history, location of the clot and how much the clot has blocked blood flow. It is best that you talk to her attending physician about this for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
