What Is a PSARP? 

A posterior sagital anorectoplasty (PSARP), sometimes called a pull-through surgery, is a procedure that repairs anorectal malformations, or defects of the rectum and/or anus. Children can be born with many kinds of malformations. Your child’s doctor will do an exam on your child and review a series of test to figure out the type of defect. Then they will discuss the best treatment plan for your child. This will often include surgery.
