Power Morcellators

Power Morcellators are medical devices that remove noncancerous growths, typically fibroids, from the uterus and that surgeons use when performing hysterectomies and certain kidney and spleen surgeries. They cut uterine tissue during laparoscopic surgery. Doctors insert these devices through small incisions and remove tissue after cutting and shredding it.

The problem with Power Morcellators is that in many cases they detach and leave behind small tissues during surgery. These pieces spread throughout the body. Some women whose surgeons used Power Morcellators discovered later they had cancer, more specifically Leiomyosarcoma, Myelosarcoma, or Uterine Sarcoma. In many cases, the cancer was aggressive and diagnosed at a late stage.

Johnson & Johnson is largest manufacture of these devices and have halted sale and distribution of these devices.
