Pathophysiology of CES is characterized by the following sequence of events: development of an atherosclerotic plaque in a large artery (such as the aorta, the internal carotid or iliac arteries); spontaneous or traumatic (including iatrogenic) plaque rupture; embolization of cholesterol crystals, platelets, fibrin and calcified debris from the plaque; mechanical plugging of small to medium (100–200 mm) arteries; and foreign-body inflammatory response to cholesterol emboli.
