Summary

A morcellator is a device used in surgery to remove big masses of various types of tissues from the body. It has benefits to many people undergoing surgery because it allows for a less invasive way to enter the body. Instead of making large incisions as was required in the past, a morcellator allows for a smaller incision to be made the reduces healing time and blood loss. Rather than cutting out pieces of tissue, a morcellator minces up pieces of the tissue and then removes it piece by piece.

Common Side Effects

While morcellators do allow for certain tasks to be completed in an easier fashion than other surgical styles, they also present a number of risk factors. It is possible when using a morcellator that other tissues surrounding the area being morcellated could become damaged. There have been cases of surrounding organs being cut or harmed when performing surgery with a morcellator.

There is also evidence to suggest that power morcellators can result in the spead of unknown cancers throughout the body. When utilizing a power morcellator for removal of the uterus or uterine fibroids, there is a strong risk of spreading around a cancer known as uterine sarcoma (leiomyosarcoma) to other areas of the body. This cancer is nearly impossible to detect before surgery. If all of the cancer cells are not removed when the uterus is removed, it is possible they can be disseminated to other parts of the body. When this occurs, there is a much greater risk of those cancer cells causing harm and even death.

Medical Compensation for Side Effects

Lawsuits can be filed against the makers of the power morcellator for developing a product that endangered patients. If you developed cancer after undergoing a surgery involving a power morcellator, please request a free, no obligation case evaluation.
