Power Morcellators – Colorado Dangerous Medical Devices Lawyer

Power Morcellators Device - Dangerous Medical Devices Attorney - Colorado Burg Simpson

Burg Simpson is not currently pursuing new power morcellator cases.

HAVE YOU BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER AFTER UNDERGOING A HYSTERECTOMY OR PROCEDURE TO REMOVE FIBROIDS?

If so, you probably have a lot of questions.

  • Did my procedure cause my health problems?
  • Am I entitled to compensation?
  • How do I find out if I have a case?
  • Will it cost me anything?

Burg Simpson is currently investigating legal claims against leading manufacturers of power morcellators, including the Gynecare Morcellex™ manufactured by Ethicon. Women who have been diagnosed with cancer after undergoing a hysterectomy or fibroid removal surgery may be entitled to compensation.

  • Did my procedure cause my health problems?
  • Can a power morcellator spread cancer?

Power morcellators are widely used in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) hysterectomies and uterine fibroid removal procedures. These small-bladed devices allow surgeons to cut the uterus or fibroid tissues into small parts for easy removal through a laparoscopic tube inserted through a small incision in the patient’s abdomen.

For women who may have previously undiagnosed cancer or sarcoma, as many as 1 in 350 women have undiagnosed cancer, which during power morcellation may be spread throughout the body.

Recent medical studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in March 2014 have prompted the medical community, federal regulators, and lawyers to consider whether these devices pose a serious health risk to women.

Many women across the country have filed lawsuits, seeking compensation for their injuries. The lawsuits allege that manufacturers of these devices knew, or should have known, of the serious risks associated with morcellation procedures and the potential to spread cancer during a hysterectomy or uterine fibroid removal.

Read the FDA Safety Announcement and label advisory regarding Morcellators.

On June 18, 2015, a request was made to consolidate these cases for rulings on issues common to all claims. The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation will hear this case on July 30, 2015.

In a safety announcement made by the FDA, they stated, "Based on an analysis of currently available data, the FDA has determined that approximately 1 in 350 women who are undergoing hysterectomy or myomectomy for fibroids have an unsuspected type of uterine cancer called uterine sarcoma (leiomyosarcoma). If laparoscopic power morcellation is performed in these women, 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."
