Wound Breakdown and Off-Pump Bypass Surgery

After the off-pump bypass surgery is finished, your skin is sewn back together with stitches and covered with a bandage. Sometimes, your skin or the layers of tissue beneath it may not heal well. This can happen because of an infection or swelling. It may also happen in people who are obese or who have other health concerns, such as diabetes.
If the incision doesn't heal well, it may need extra attention. This can include changing the bandage daily or possibly having additional surgery. It may take extra time for the wound to heal, and your scar may also be thicker and more obvious (this is called a keloid).
