Coronary bypass graft wound. Close-up of the healed surgical wound on the chest of an 81-year-old female patient 3 weeks after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. CABG is a surgical procedure performed on the heart to treat diseased coronary arteries. A piece of healthy artery or vein is taken from another part of the body and attached (grafted) to the diseased coronary artery. This re-routes the blood flow, bypassing the blocked coronary artery.
