Uterine Cancer Linked to Fibroid & Hysterectomy Patients
Devices Used in Hysterectomy & Fibroid Procedures Linked to Uterine Cancer
A hysterectomy or myomectomy can be a difficult, painful procedure. To help women who need the benefits of this surgery avoid an invasive operation, devices called "morcellators" can remove unwanted tissue trough a small incision. But some popular morcellators have been linked to the spread of dangerous cancer cells called Uterine Sarcomas.
Morcellation, short for laparoscopic power morcellation, is intended to remove uterine fibroids, as well as the uterus itself. These instruments have been found to spread cancerous cells from fibroids through patients' bodies.
Dangerous devices include:
- Gynecare Morcellex
- Gynecare X-Tract tissue morcellators
- Morcellex Sigma tissue morcellator system
If you had a hysterectomy or uterine fibroid removed with a morcellator and later developed uterine cancer, you may have a case. Contact our law firm today to learn about your legal options.
