not sure how this works but i am trying to find out about cholesterol emboli that my 57yr old brother has. he just had heart by-pass done and they said the chrystals broke off either during angiography or surgery. he has what is called blue toe syndrome from this. very rare with low mortality.is any research being done anywhere in the united states?
