Evaluation of Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) affects many women in the course of their lifetime and can be the cause of a severe impairment of quality of life. Many risk factors are known for pelvic organ prolapse such as obstetrics history, physical labor over many years and genetic and familial predisposition. However, usually there is very little a woman can do to reduce the impact of risk factors especially in underserved populations or low-income countries. POP is not a life-threatening condition and fortunately many treatment options – conservative as well as surgical – are available to support women suffering from POP.
