    In this review we try to shed light on the following questions: How frequently are symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB) and is detrusor overactivity (DO) present in patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and is there a difference from women without POP? Does the presence of OAB symptoms depend on the prolapsed compartment and/or stage of the prolapse? What is the possible pathophysiology of OAB in POP? Do OAB symptoms and DO change after conservative or surgical treatment of POP?
