Pulmonary Embolism

A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot in the arteries of the lungs. Typically a blockage from the legs breaks loose and travels to the lungs creating an embolism. Symptoms can include shortness of breath, chest pain and coughing up blood. This can be treated by a pulmonary embolectomy, which is a procedure to remove the clot from the lung.
