Abstract In many regards female pelvic organ prolapse (POP) remains an enigma to patients and clinicians alike. The uncertainty is contributed to by the wide variety of symptoms being attributed to POP and significant variation in the rate, timing and types of interventions performed. As a result of and contributing to the lack of clarity, there are no published guidelines available to guide women and their clinicians on the surgical management of POP. This article will review and discuss some of the recent changes and trends in the surgical management of prolapse.
