Interventional procedure overview of Interventional procedure overview of faecal microbiota transplant for recurrent recurrent Clostridium difficile infection. INTERVENTIONAL PROCEDURES PROGRAMME.
Infections caused by bacteria called Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) in the gut can cause severe diarrhoea and illness.
