Abstract

In recent years, the problem of pelvic organ prolapse has been given much more attention. Many women are living longer, and there is more interest in maintaining self-image of femininity and the capacity of sexual activity beyond menopause. Although few data on the incidence or preva- lence of various forms of pelvic organ prolapse exist, the incidence appears to be rising based on increased longevity of women.
