Hey why don't you code for then pseudomembranous colitis or ulcerative colitis ?
Be'coz, Fecal bacteriotherapy, also known as fecal transfusion, fecal transplant, or human probiotic infusion (HPI), is a medical treatment for patients with pseudomembranous colitis (caused by Clostridium difficile), or ulcerative colitis which involves restoration of colon homeostasis by reintroducing normal bacterial flora from stool obtained from a healthy donor.
The procedure has been used to successfully cure C. difficile infections for a number of years, with a success rate of nearly 95% according to some sources. The benefits of fecal bacteriotherapy include reducing the risk of antibiotic-associated resistance, cost savings when compared to repeated courses of antibiotic therapy, and high success rate. It is still considered a "last resort" therapy due to the inherent risks involved and lack of Medicare coverage for donor stool screening and instillation procedure.
Hope this helps!
