The Dangers of Power Morcellator Use in Hysterectomies & Fibroid Removal Procedures


Morcellator Lawsuits We are investigating instances where uterine cancer is diagnosed after a hysterectomy or fibroid removal procedure, where a power morcellator was used.It appears that use of the power morcellator in a hysterectomy or myomectomy can sometimes cause the spread of previously undiagnosed cancer. The FDA reports that 1 in 350 women undergoing a hysterectomy or fibroid removal procedure has undiagnosed uterine cancer.

What is a Power Morcellator?

A power morcellator is a medical device which is used in approximately 50,000 laparoscopic and robotic surgical procedures each year. The device’s purpose is to remove fibroid tissue through a small incision. The morcellator is inserted into the small incision site, where the fibroid tissue is suctioned out of the incision site via the morcellator device. Sadly, a serious side effect out of the device’s use is that it poses the risk of spreading uterine cancers to adjacent tissue.

The Defective Medical Device Attorneys of Nadrich & Cohen, LLP  are actively investigating and pursuing claims of women who had the Morcellator used during surgery, and, subsequently developed uterine cancer, leiomyosarcoma, endometrial stromal sarcoma or other types of related cancers. We are handling these cases throughout the United States.

Understanding Car Insurance Costs

Before buying a new car, you may want to consider all costs of owning a vehicle not just your monthly car payment.
