This case highlights a 47-year-old patient with antiphospholipid syndrome and a prior stroke who underwent CABG for triple vessel disease. Despite a 7-day hospital stay, delayed wound healing at the intervention site ensued, compounded by a bacterial infection. Treatment involved betadine wound care and dermatologist follow-up. The patient's medications included Acetylsalicylic acid, atorvastatin, bisoprolol, Valsartan, and warfarin. This case underscores the significance of recognizing poor wound healing in antiphospholipid syndrome patients’ post-surgery, necessitating vigilant management to mitigate complications and preserve quality of life.
