Pull-thru Network (PTN) was founded in 1988 and has grown to be one of the largest organizations in the world dedicated to the needs of those born with an anorectal malformation or colon disease and any of the associated diagnoses. These diagnoses include:
♦ Imperforate Anus ♦ Cloaca ♦ Cloacal Exstrophy ♦ Anal Stenosis ♦ Bladder Exstrophy ♦ VACTERL/VATER Association ♦ Hirschsprung's Disease ♦ Tethered Spinal Cord ♦ Neurogenic Bladder ♦ Caudal Regression ♦ Down Syndrome and ♦ others
Despite the differences in diagnoses, the members of Pull-thru Network are bound together by a common need for information, education, support and advocacy for families, children, teen and adults who are facing the challenges of these diagnoses. We invite you to take a look at the programs and services provided by Pull-thru Network and encourage you to take advantage of all that is available by becoming a PTN member. Membership is required for participation in many of the features of this website. By requiring membership, Pull-thru Network is protecting your and your child's privacy while facilitating an open exchange of information between members.
