UTERINE SURGERY — POWER MORCELLATORS — UTERINE CANCER — LEIOMYOSARCOMA
During the laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopic uterine surgery, e.g., hysterectomy, myomectomy, fibroids), a power morcellator may have been used to remove the symptom causing fibroids in the uterine area and other non-cancerous growths or tumors.
But, if a power morcellator has been used during a laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopic uterine surgery) and there are cancerous cells already present, the power morcellator may potentially exacerbate or help spread the cancerous cells, growth or tissue.
This unfettered spreading of the cancerous cells may lead to the development of cancer, particularly:
- uterine cancer (leiomyosarcoma (LMS), Uterine leiomyosarcoma (ULMS), endometrial cancer, sarcoma…).
- metastatic leiomyosarcoma
- uterine sarcoma
- endometrial stromal sarcoma
- the abnormal growth of tissue
- direct harm to healthy tissue
