Abstract

The number of women who will undergo pelvic organ prolapse repair is predicted to increase by almost 50% by 2050. Surgeons need updated knowledge and mastery of pelvic floor reconstruction in order to meet the rising demand for services. This review provides an update on the evidence for the various surgical techniques for anterior, posterior, and apical pelvic organ prolapse, specifically focusing on randomized trials within the last ten years.
