    Abstract

    Pelvic organ prolapse is common in women around the world. Fifty percent of women who experience childbirth have disorders of the pelvic floor. Currently, conservative options exist to manage disorders of the pelvic floor, and the majority of women with minimal symptoms or with major medical problems choose this route. However, surgical management is a viable option for many. Approximately one in nine of these women will undergo at least one procedure for pelvic organ prolapse or urinary incontinence in their lifetime. Prolapse can have a profound effect not only on form but probably more importantly on function. Jelovsek and Barber found that women who seek treatment for the management of advanced prolapse have a decreased sense of body image and quality of life.
