Fecal Transplant Normalizes Bacterial Health
Call it fecal transplant, fecal transfusion or human probiotic infusion - we're talking poop. A bona fide medical procedure, the idea of undergoing a fecal transplant most likely has not entered your thought process until after watching Grey's Anatomy.
Pooh-poohed in Entertainment Weekly alongside the cast's liaisons with the dearly departed, it bears mentioning that fecal transplants are actually for real.
Fecal Bacteriotherapy Used To Cure Patients With Clostridium difficile
A bacterium infecting the colon, C. difficile eradicates the healthy bacterial flora that exists in the human gut and sets itself up instead. Symptoms of this switch are bouts of severe abdominal pain, constipation, bloating, and all the other gastrointestinal symptoms you don't want to read about over midmorning breakfast.
Considered by some a sensationalized killer bug and a real threat by others, Clostridium difficile is literally found everywhere and it is deadly. Fecal bacteriotherapy - the fecal transplant - is controversial but it yields results. CBC News Canada explained more than a year ago that in Scandinavia fecal transfusions have become the healthcare standard when dealing with these bacteria.
At the center of the human probiotic infusion is a stool sample from a healthy individual which will be liquefied and transplanted via enema into the suffering patient. Quoting Dr. Tom Louie from Calgary, the procedure is summed up rather simply: "It takes me about an hour and I leave it in there overnight. I'm hoping that some of these normal bugs will find a home, and when they find a home it will kick out the C. difficile."
