A history of emboli is important. Thrombus formation results from stasis and hypercoagulability. It appears, however, that venous stasis is the most important cause of thrombus formation. Bed rest, congestive heart failure, obesity, pregnancy, recent extended travel on airplanes, and oral contraceptives have been linked to thrombus formation and emboli.

Symptoms secondary to emboli can include shortness of breath from pulmonary emboli; abdominal pain from splenic, intestinal, or renal artery emboli;neurologic symptoms from carotid or vertebrobasilar artery emboli; and pain and paresthesias from peripheral artery emboli.
