In brief: Fractures
Fractures of the long bones are the commonest cause of fat embolism, though most cases go undetected.
Chest compression as part of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation is often associated with fat/bone marrow embolism. Injury to fatty tissue and uncommon metabolic disorders also can cause fat embolism.
