Laparoscopic Power Morcellator Lawsuits

Laparoscopic Power Morcellator is a medical device used for various minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures including gynecological surgeries, such as hysterectomies and myomectomies. The FDA has issued a warning about the risk of cancerous tissues emanating from uterine sarcomas spreading beyond the uterus in gynecological procedures using Laparoscopic Power Morcellators. The spread of cancerous cells following these procedures could significantly worsen the survival rates for patients.

What is Laparoscopic Power Morcellator?

Laparoscopic Power Morcellator is a medical device that is used during laparoscopic procedures. This minimally invasive surgical technique operates by separating affected tissues into smaller pieces in order to remove tissue through small incision sites. The use of laparoscopic instruments is generally linked to short recovery periods and a lower incidence of post-surgical infection. Laparoscopic Power Morcellator is used in a variety of surgical procedures including hysterectomy (removal of a woman’s uterus) and myomectomy (removal of non-carcinogenic uterine fibroids in a woman’s uterine lining).

What is Happening with Laparoscopic Power Morcellator?

The FDA found that the use of laparoscopic power morcellator in hysterectomies and myomectomies may increase the risk of spreading the cancer in certain patients. Uterine sarcomas are cancerous growths that may be present in women with uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous growths in the uterine lining. Uterine sarcomas are more common than previously thought. The FDA found that a sarcoma may exist in 1 in 225 to 1 in 580 women who are surgical candidates for uterine fibroids.

Because uterine sarcomas and uterine fibroids may appear similar in imaging tests and there are no reliable tests to accurately distinguish between the two, women that have cancerous sarcomas and undergo a hysterectomy or myomectomy with a Laparoscopic Power Morcellator face the risk of cancerous tissues spreading within the body. Reports have indicated that women who undergo gynecological surgeries with undetected sarcomas have significantly lower chances of long-term survival.

The FDA has warned health care providers against the use of laparoscopic power morcellators in women who have been diagnosed with cancer and those undergoing gynecological surgeries who have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids. Upon the FDA’s recommendation, manufacturers of the device now provide specific information on its labels to warn patients of the risk of spreading cancer.
