BACKGROUND Pelvic organ prolapse is common, and some degree of prolapse is seen in 50% of parous women. Women with prolapse can experience a variety of pelvic floor symptoms. Treatments include surgery, mechanical devices and conservative management. Conservative management approaches, such as giving lifestyle advice and delivering pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT), are often used in cases of mild to moderate prolapse. This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in 2004, and… 

Figures from this paper

Surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse in women.
TLDR
Meta-analysis on the impact of continence surgery at the time of prolapse surgery was performed with data from seven studies, and abdominal sacral colpopexy was associated with a lower rate of recurrent vault prolapse and dyspareunia than with vaginal sacrospinous col popexy.
Pessaries (mechanical devices) for pelvic organ prolapse in women.
TLDR
There is an urgent need for randomised studies to address the use of pessaries in comparison with no treatment, surgery and conservative measures.
Surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse in women.
TLDR
Native tissue anterior repair was associated with more recurrent anterior compartment prolapse than when supplemented with a polyglactin (absorbable) mesh inlay and awareness of prolapse was also higher after the anterior repair as compared to polypropylene mesh repair.
Conservative Management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse
TLDR
Conservative management should ideally be offered to women with prolapse while discussing their management options, and the improvement of patient’s symptoms and the quality of life measures that are analyzed.
Pelvic organ prolapse management
TLDR
The current evidence for the management of pelvic organ prolapse is reviewed, providing an update on the current state of mesh in prolapse surgery and the key evidence points derived from the literature are summarised.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Conservative treatments in primary care
TLDR
In women with advanced prolapse, there was no significant difference between PFMT and pessary treatment in the reduction of pelvic floor symptoms, however, women with typical prolapse symptoms seemed to benefit more from pessARY treatment than from PFMT.
Conservative interventions for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse
TLDR
A systematic review is planned to assess the effectiveness of conservative intervention for adult women with POP to provide solid evidence for the treatment of POP by conservative intervention.
Conservative Management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Indian Contribution
TLDR
This review outlines some of the well-established conservative treatment options for POP and highlights the unique contribution of Indian Obstetricians in the development of these conservative surgical treatment options, from prominent Indian Gynecologists.
Pessaries (mechanical devices) for managing pelvic organ prolapse in women.
TLDR
The effects of pessaries (mechanical devices) for managing pelvic organ prolapse in women are assessed and the principal findings of relevant economic evaluations of this intervention are summarised.

Mechanical devices for pelvic organ prolapse in women.
TLDR
There is an urgent need for randomised studies to address the use of mechanical devices in comparison with no treatment, surgery and conservative measures as there is no evidence from randomised controlled trials upon which to base treatment of women with pelvic organ prolapse.
Surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse in women.
TLDR
Meta-analysis on the impact of continence surgery at the time of prolapse surgery was performed with data from seven studies, and abdominal sacral colpopexy was associated with a lower rate of recurrent vault prolapse and dyspareunia than with vaginal sacrospinous col popexy.
Oestrogens for treatment or prevention of pelvic organ prolapse in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
The use of local oestrogen in conjunction with pelvic floor muscle training before surgery may reduce the incidence of post-operative cystitis within four weeks after surgery.

TLDR
There is an urgent need for more RCT with high methodological quality, use of valid and reproducible methods to assess degree of prolapse, and appropriate training protocols to evaluate the effect of PFMT in the prevention and treatment of POP.
Management of genital prolapse
TLDR
The management in primary care of women with genital prolapse and the options in secondary care should consider the patient's history of rectal prolapse, bladder and bowel function, and sexual activity.

TLDR
The anatomic basis, the standard nomenclature, common symptoms and nonsurgical treatment of prolapse, which offers an alternative to surgical therapy, are summarized.
