Power Morcellators

In April 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a drug safety communication discouraging the use of Johnson & Johnson's laparoscopic power morcellation device for hysterectomies and myomectomies. This alert was issued based on an investigation of data where researchers found that the use of this device poses a risk of spreading undetected cancerous tissues.

FDA Issues Drug Safety Communication

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a drug safety communication in April of 2014 discouraging the use of Johnson & Johnson’s laparoscopic power morcellation device for hysterectomies and myomectomies. This alert was issued based on an investigation of data where researchers found that the use of this device poses a risk of spreading undetected cancerous tissues. The FDA found that approximately 1 in 350 women who have fibroids and have a myomectomy or hysterectomy may have uterine sarcoma.

The laparoscopic power morcellation device is used to divide the tissue in the uterus into small pieces to then be removed through an incision in the abdomen. Johnson & Johnson has temporarily suspended sales of the device due to the recent concerns.
