Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Aneurysm refers to the dilatation or widening of the blood vessel wall.
This can occur due to the atherosclerotic changes or from the high blood pressure.
Aortic aneurysm is one such example.
Emvolism is the blocking of the blood vessel with a blood clot or fat globule.
They travel from one part of the body to the another part of the body --hence called embolism.
Blood clot Embolism in the lungs is one such example.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
