Pelvic organ prolapse is caused by vaginal parity, ageing, hysterectomy and raised intra-abdominal pressure. <BR>A new system of staging pelvic organ prolapse has been developed, validated and introduced. <BR>Staging is no longer subjective (small, medium, large, etc.), but objectively measured. <BR>New terminology and definitions replace previously used terms such as cystocele, rectocele and vault prolapse. <BR>Prosthetic graft material has been introduced to improve the quality of pelvic reconstructive surgery. <BR>The one-operation-fits-all approach needs to be revised, and a more objective evidence-based approach considered.
