Texas Answers for Morcellator Hysterectomy Cancer Questions

We are providing an update to common questions that may be relevant to most Texas morcellator lawsuit claims.

Why is Morcellator Hysterectomy Surgery Dangerous?

According to the FDA, when laparoscopic power morcellators are used for gynecologic myomectomy and hysterectomy procedures, there is a significant danger of spreading undetected uterine cancer throughout the abdomen and pelvis.

Should this occur, the treatable uterine cancer is catapulted into an advanced-stage and often deadly version of the disease. This change from grade 1 (cancer confined in the uterine wall) to grade 4 or metastatic cancer is known as "upstaging." Because there is no reliable way to detect uterine cancer prior to surgery, the use of power morcellators has been found to be unacceptably dangerous.

The Link Between Morcellator Hysterectomy Surgery and the Spread of Uterine Cancer

In 2006, Dr. Richard Lamparter, notified Johnson & Johnson, warning the company of the risk for power morcellator use during laparoscopic hysterectomy to spread uterine cancer. Dr. Lamparter wanted a warning to be added to the product’s label. In 2014, the problem came to the attention of federal regulators. The FDA recommended that morcellators be banned for gynecologic procedures and Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon division issued a global recall.

How do Morcellators Spread Uterine Cancer?

When a morcellation device is used to remove fibroids, or to remove the entire uterus in a hysterectomy procedure, the tissues are ground up into very small pieces and then removed with suction through incisions in the umbilical or belly button area.

But if uterine cancer is present, the grinding and suction of the cancerous tissue “seeds” the abdominal and pelvic areas with cancer. According to the FDA, an estimated 1 in 350 surgery patients have undetected uterine cancer at the time of morcellation surgery.

Ethicon J&J Power Morcellator Recall

In April of 2014, Johnson & Johnson suspended marketing and sales of power morcellators used for gynecologic surgeries.

Then in July of 2014, following the recommendations of federal regulators to discontinue the use of morcellation devices for hysterectomy and myomectomy, Johnson & Johnson issued a global morcellator recall.

The three products included in the morcellator recall include the Gynecare Morcellex, the Gynecare X-Tract, and the Morcellex Sigma. J&J dominates the global market for this device.
