Caption: Muscle wasting after CABG surgery. Close-up of muscle wasting (atrophy) on the hand of a 62-year-old male patient at the site where a section of radial artery was harvested for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. During CABG, a healthy artery harvested from another part of the body is attached to the diseased coronary artery in order to re-route the blood flow, bypassing the blocked coronary artery. This is usually to treat atherosclerosis, a build-up of fatty deposits that can lead to heart pain (angina) or a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
