In brief: Embolism is a vascul

Embolism is when a clot or piece of cholesterol plaque travels from one part of the vascularture to another so by definition it is a vascular disease.
Now an embolism can cause new disease where it travels to such as stroke, and ischemia of a limb or intestines.

In brief: Embolus

If the emboli is from a diseased artery there is a relationship.
Vascular disease and emboli from venous sources are also related. Check out pad.Com for more info. Your question is broad. Also medscape.Com has some good information.
