Morcellators Used During Hysterectomies Or Myomectomies Can Spread Cancer

Posted by Frank Spector | May 19, 2015 | 0 Comments

Women who have their uterus removed in a hysterectomy, or have fibroids removed from their uterus (myomectomy), may have had a morcellator used during the procedure.  A morcellator is an electric device that is often used during a laparoscopic procedure that uses a small incision.  The morcellator cuts the tissue into small pieces so it can be removed through the small incision.  The problem is when the uterus has cancerous tumors that are not known to the patient or doctor.  In those cases, when the morcellator cuts the tissue, it can cause cancer cells to spread to other areas of the body. Some women have been diagnosed with cancer following use of the morcellator, including a diagnosis of leiomyosarcoma.

Manufacturers of morcellators include J&J Ethicon, Blue Endo, LiNa Medical, Karl Storz and Richard Wolf.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer following a hysterectomy or myomectomy, call the morcellator lawyer at Frank Spector Law, toll free, 1-800-299-4878.
