A 64-year-old man underwent three vessel coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). His intraoperative and postoperative course was remarkable other than transient atrial fibrillation postoperatively for which he was anticoagulated and incisional chest pain which was treated with ibuprofen. He was discharged on post-operative day 5. However, he presented to an outside emergency department two days later with chest pain which had been present since discharge but had intensified.
