Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has become a common surgical procedure. During this procedure, the greater saphenous vein is most often used as the conduit and the side effects of the leg vein harvesting include a variety of cutaneous changes. We report the cutaneous effects at the saphenous vein harvesting sites in 21 patients who underwent CABG.
