Electronic power morcellators are medical devices used in myomectomy and hysterectomy procedures to break up fibroid tissue, so it can be removed from the body via minimally invasive surgery. Although these devices are effective at breaking up these non-cancerous growths, use of power morcellators have been linked to the spread of a rare uterine cancer known as metastatic leiomyosarcoma. This rare form of cancer can lie dormant for many years inside the uterus and often goes completely undetected. In some cases, use of electronic morcellators can disseminate uterine tissue and spread it throughout the woman’s abdomen. If there are cancer cells present, this can lead to the spread of the cancer to other organs and tissues in the body.
