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. We searched the Cochrane Incontinence Group Specialised Trials Register (searched 3 May 2006) and reference lists of relevant articles. We also contacted researchers in the field. Trials were assessed and data extracted independently by two reviewers. Six investigators were contacted for additional information with five responding.
