Dangerous Side Effects of a Power Morcellator
Doctors performed 11% of all hysterectomies using power morcellators. Many doctors highly recommmend morcellation procedures as they seem less invasive allowing for a faster recovery, minimal scarring, and fewer chances of infections and other complications. However as uterine or endometrial cancer can go undetected prior to surgery; doctors who use a power morcellator may cut into contained cancerous tissue. This may allow life-threatening cells to spread faster throughout the lower abdomen and also, pelvis.
Due to these possible health risks, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration suspended all sales of power morcellator medical devices after issuing a warning on April 17, 2014 urging medical professionals not to use the device.
