Power Morcellator Safety Warning

A morcellator is a surgical instrument used for division ("morsellation") and removal of masses of tissues during laparoscopic surgery.

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. It may also involve removal of the cervix, ovaries, Fallopian tubes and other surrounding structures.

In a laparoscopic hysterectomy, the uterus is extracted from the abdomen by use of the power morcellator. The uterus is morcellated

into smaller pieces so that it be easily removed from inside the abdomen.

On April 17, 2014, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety alert concerning the power morcellator as follows:
If laparoscopic power morcellation is performed in women with unsuspected uterine sarcoma, there is a risk that the procedure will spread the cancerous tissue within the abdomen and pelvis, significantly worsening the patient’s likelihood of long-term survival. For this reason, and because there is no reliable method for predicting whether a woman with fibroids may have a uterine sarcoma, the FDA discourages the use of laparoscopic power morcellation during hysterectomy or myomectomy for uterine fibroids.

1 in 350 women undergoing hysterectomy or myomectomy for the treatment of fibroids are found to have an unsuspected uterine sarcoma.

Power Morcellators

Laparoscopic power morcellators are surgical instruments used during different types of laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgeries to treat uterine fibroids.

These procedures include a hysterectomy or myomectomy.

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. It may also involve removal of the cervix, ovaries, Fallopian tubes and other surrounding structures.

A myomectomy is the surgical removal of uterine fibroids.

Morcellation refers to the division of tissue into smaller pieces or fragments and is used to facilitate the removal of tissue through a small incision site.

FDA Warnings

The FDA reports that if a laparoscopic power morcellation is used during a hysterectomy or myomectomy in women with unsuspected uterine sarcoma, there is a risk that the procedure will spread the cancerous tissue within the abdomen and pelvis, significantly worsening the patient’s long-term survival.

Because of this risk and the availability of alternative surgical options for most women, the FDA is warning against the use of laparoscopic power morcellators in the majority of women undergoing myomectomy or hysterectomy for treatment of fibroids.
