Caption

Infected wound on the chest of a 73 year old male patient, two months after a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). The wound is being swabbed. The yellow pus seen is due to bacterial infection. During CABG a healthy vein (from the arm or leg) is attached to the diseased coronary artery of the heart, bypassing the blocked coronary artery. Swabbing may be required to sample and identify the bacteria causing the infection.
