Petition to Ban Power Morcellator Surgery Now Has 62,800 Supporters, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:8/15/2014

l that warned of the association between power morcellators and the spread of uterine sarcoma and other cancers. Among other things, the FDA alert estimated that 1 in every 350 women having fibroids removed may have undetected uterine sarcoma or another cancer prior to surgery, which may not be discovered until after fibroids are removed and biopsied.

Most recently, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 1 in 368 women undergoing power morcellator surgeries may have undiagnosed uterine cancers. The research, which was released on July 22nd, 2014, also showed a higher likelihood of undetected cancer in women older than 65, and found that 32 percent of morcellation patients with the undiagnosed disease were younger than 50.*

On July 30th, Johnson & Johnson announced that it would be removing all power morcellators marketed by its subsidiary, Ethicon, Inc. from the market following its previous decision to cease sales of the devices. A notice posted on the company’s website indicated that its Gynecare Morcellex, Gynecare X-Tract and Morcellex Sigma morcellator systems would be withdrawn due to uncertain risks associated with their use.**

Women who may have been diagnosed with uterine cancer after power morcellator surgery may be eligible to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for damages allegedly caused by the device.
