Caption: Infected wound and scar on the leg of a 67 year old male patient is being swabbed then dressed, two weeks after the vein was harvested for a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). The red areas seen are due to bacterial infection. During CABG a healthy vein (from the leg in this case) is attached to the diseased coronary artery of the heart, bypassing the blocked coronary artery.
