Infected heart bypass leg wound on a 79-year-old woman's leg. This is 6 weeks after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. The bypass surgery involved harvesting a vein from the leg, and grafting parts of the vein onto the heart to repair it. This wound is where the vein was removed from the leg. The infection will be treated with antibiotic drugs.
