For coding a hernia sac; What is Stain/cnt, H&E, Initial x 1? Could this be '88313' special stains group II? I don't understand the abreviations so this is a wild guess. Help please

88313-Hematoxylin-eosin-Mayer's progressive stain

A heads up...I have since found out from Lay terms/Tips from supercoder code lookup for "88313" that H&E (Hematoxylin-eosin-Mayer's progressive stain) is not a special stain and should not be separately coded as is included in the surgical pathology code for gross and microscopical examination.
