High cholesterol: The sign of a blockage that can emerge around the fingernails

Occasionally, the embolism will occur in the aorta – the largest artery in the body which carries blood away from the heart.

In this scenario, surgical therapy may be necessary to remove the blocking materials.

“A high index of suspicion is imperative because the signs and symptoms of cholesterol embolism are often atypical, unrecognised, not temporally correlated with the onset of physical findings, and or simply overlooked,” explains Medscape.

What’s more, there is no laboratory testing designated for cholesterol embolism, so a thorough physical examination is critical.
