Morcellator Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes New Calls for Ban on Uterine Mocellation In Light of Cancer Risk
Date:7/26/2014

woman’s peritoneal cavity. This can result in an upstaging of the cancer and greatly reducing a patient’s chances of long-term survival. At the time, the FDA estimated that 1 in 350 women with uterine fibroids actually have undetected uterine sarcoma cells within that tissue.

Last month, the FDA’s Obstetrics and Gynecology Devices Panel met for two-days to discuss the risks associated with uterine morcellation. According to a report from The Boston Globe, the panelists heard emotional testimony from cancer victims and their families, many of whom said they were never told that a power morcellator had the potential to spread uterine cancers.**

Even before the FDA acted, court records indicate that morcellator lawsuits were being filed in U.S. courts on behalf of women who allegedly experienced the spread of undetected uterine cancer because of power morcellation. In February, for example, the husband of a 53-year-old woman who died from uterine cancer less than a year after she underwent power morcellation filed a morcellator lawsuit in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania. (Case No. 14 5557) On May 1, 2014 a similar complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court, Western District of New York on behalf of a woman who blames uterine morcellation for the spread of leiomyosarcoma in her abdominal cavity. (Case 6:14-cv-06218) That case was followed by the May 13th filing of a complaint in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, which alleges the use of a Wolf Power Morcellator promoted the dissemination of uterine cancer cells throughout a woman's peritoneal cavity. (Case No. Case5:14-cv-02209-PSG)
