Experimental: Prevena device (Group A)
Group A will have the VAC Prevena portable device applied to the saphenous vein harvest site after standard wound closure following coronary artery bypass surgery.
Device: Prevena device (Group A)
This portable device is applied to initiate negative pressure therapy to a wound site.
No Intervention: Conventional dressing (Group B)
Group B will have conventional dry dressing applied to the saphenous vein harvest site after standard wound closure following coronary artery bypass surgery.
- Change from baseline ASEPSIS score of wound healing at 6 weeks. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]The ASEPSIS quantitative wound scoring method will be used to assess patients' leg wound healing after saphenous vein harvesting for coronary artery bypass surgery.
- Total score of pain level. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]Patients will be asked to evaluate the level of pain (using the Leg Incision Assessment Form) at the wound site after saphenous vein harvesting.
