What Are Power Morcellators?

Power morcellators are medical devices used to facilitate the removal of uterine fibroids during fibroid surgery, and they're also commonly used during hysterectomies. The morcellator cuts uterine tissue into tiny pieces, making it easier to remove this tissue through a small incision during a laproscopic surgical procedure.

The use of a morcellator during a hysterectomy or fibroid surgery became popular due to the fact that it resulted in a less invasive procedure. The benefits of this method included shorter recovery time, smaller scars, fewer complications, and less pain.

The Link between the Use of Morcellators & the Spread of Cancer

In April 2014, the FDA issued a warning discouraging the use of morcellators for hysterectomies and the removal of uterine fibroids due to evidence that these devices can spread undetected cancerous cells to other areas of the body such as the abdomen or pelvis. Once these cancer cells spread beyond the uterus, the chances of survival are significantly worse.

While uterine fibroids are typically benign tumors growing within a woman's uterus, the FDA estimates that 1 out of 350 women with fibroids have undetected malignant cancer cells. According to medical researchers, the use of morcellators makes it 9 times more likely that uterine cancer will spread during a hysterectomy or fibroid surgery.

Due to this serious risk, the FDA is currently considering whether power morcellators should be banned from use in hysterectomies and fibroid surgery. Currently, this risk has caused several top hospitals around the country to discontinue using morcellators entirely.
