Uterine-Cancer-Power-Morcellator-300Deadly cancers of the uterus are being spread by minimally invasive and robot assisted hysterectomies.

Morcellators, electronic devices used to remove tissue during hysterectomies and other gynecological surgeries, have been tied to the spread of a rare, but aggressive, uterine cancer called leiomyosarcoma. Since 2013, a number of morcellator cancer lawsuits have been filed against Ethicon Inc., Blue Endo, Lina Medical, and other medical device manufacturers that market these instruments.
