morcellator lawsuit settlementFederal health regulators have warned that power morcellators, a type of surgical tool used in laparoscopic hysterectomies and fibroid removal procedures, may promote the spread of a rare, but often deadly, form of uterine cancer.

Ethicon (Johnson & Johnson) and other morcellator manufacturers have already been named in at least one power morcellator lawsuit alleging the use of the devices can promote the spread of uterine sarcoma. In all of these cases the women never knew that they had hidden, undetectable cancer. Studies have shown that 1 in 350 women have the hidden, undetectable cancer.

Power morcellators use long, tube-shaped blades to cut uterine tissue into small pieces. This allows a surgeon performing a laparoscopic hysterectomy, to remove the tissue through a small incision. Power morcellators are also frequently used to remove uterine fibroids.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a safety alert to discourage the use of power morcellators in women undergoing hysterectomies and/or fibroid removal. According to the alert, power morcellation poses a risk of spreading undetected cancerous cells beyond the uterus.
