Abstract

The incidence of erysipelas in extremities used for saphenous vein donation was evaluated by interviewing 302 patients who had undergone coronary artery bypass surgery. Erysipelas occurred in 6.2% of patients, and was twice as common as in patients with a history of varicose vein stripping. The difference, however, was not statistically significant.
