What Is a Rectal EUA? 

A rectal exam under anesthesia (EUA) is performed by your child’s surgeon in the operating room. This is done while your child is asleep. This allows your child to be more comfortable and allows a more complete exam of the rectum. The results of the EUA will be used to determine your child’s diagnosis. It will also be used to plan your child’s surgery and/or to plan your child’s treatment options.
