Pasadena Power Morcellator Attorney

What is a Power Morcellator?

A power morcellator is a surgical device used during laparoscopic gynecological procedures, myomectomies and hysterectomies in order to remove uterine fibroids. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced in April 2014 that the use of power morcellation during these surgeries could spread undetected cancer cells throughout the body, suggesting approximately 1 in 350 women who underwent hysterectomies or myomectomies using morcellators had unsuspected cancerous tumors located in the uterine tissue. Victims of power morcellators may be able to file a compensation-seeking product liability claim for their injuries.

How Does This Device Spread Cancer?

Manifesting during childbearing years, uterine fibroids are tissue growths located inside the uterine wall. Approximately three out of four women develop uterine fibroids during their lifetime, though most display no symptoms. While size and severity vary from person to person, women who do suffer significant problems need surgical removal.

Doctors typically recommend a minimal, invasive procedure to remove the fibroids by using a power morcellator. The device shaves malignant uterine tissue into small pieces, so it can be extracted through a small incision. Unfortunately, when a patient has undiscovered cancer tissues in the fibroids, this procedure spreads cancer cells into the abdomen and pelvis.

It’s imperative to understand that there is no reliable test to identify cancerous tissue in uterine fibroids. However, undergoing an invasive gynecological procedure may be the only way to locate malignant uterine tissue.
