A pelvic organ prolapse is a medical condition where one of the pelvic organs descends lower than its normal anatomical position in the pelvic region. In a pelvic organ prolapse, the pelvic organs, such as small intestine, bladder, uterus, bowel, or part of the vagina, which are usually supported by the pelvic floor, protrude or herniate into or at times even beyond the vaginal opening owing to weakened supporting structure of the pelvic floor. There are various types of pelvic prolapses depending on which organ has prolapsed. The prolapse of the bladder is known as cystocele.

The prolapse of the small bowel is known as enterocele. When there is a prolapse of the rectum, it is called rectocele. Uterine prolapse is when the uterus descends down from its original position. The uterus, which aids in supporting the top of the vagina, when removed, at times causes the drop of the upper portion of the vagina, which is known as a vaginal vault prolapse. The devices used to restore the pelvic organs to their original position or that offer support to keep the pelvic organs in their natural position are called pelvic organ prolapse devices.
Rise in global geriatric population and increase in lifespan are expected to boost the global pelvic organ prolapse devices market. According to the Indian Journal of Urology, pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a prevalent condition for which 1 in 9 women globally seek surgical treatment by the age of 80 years. Post-operative complications, infections arising due to vaginal pessary, patient discomfort, and vaginal bleeding are some of the factors that are expected to hamper the market growth through 2026.
