Pelvic organ prolapse may occur in up to 50% of parous women. A variety of urinary, bowel and sexual symptoms may be associated with prolapse. Objectives were to determine the effects of the many different surgeries in the management of pelvic organ prolapse.

Trials were assessed and data extracted independently by two reviewers. Six investigators were contacted for additional information with five responding.
