Laparoscopic power morcellation appears capable of causing fulminant uterine malignancies when used to remove uterine fibroids from women who have unsuspected uterine cancers.
Background: The Food and Drug Administration recently announced that the use of morcellation may cause fibroids or pelvic dissemination and metastasis of uterine sarcoma; therefore, the use of morcellation is limited in the USA.
In 2014, FDA issued the document on 'Laparoscopic Power Morcellation during Uterine Surgery for Fibroids' after the meeting on devices advisory committed where multiple treatment modalities were discussed.
4] Among them, usual limitations in vaginal hysterectomy with non-descent uteri are bigger sizes, but now even with bigger sizes, hysterectomy can be facilitated by bisection, myomectomy, wedge debulking, intramyometrial coring, morcellation and newer technique like technique of electrocautery and radiofrequency technology of sutureless surgery.
1,2) Moreover, the rates of both laparoscopic and abdominal myomectomy have decreased following the controversial morcellation advisory issued by the US Food and Drug Administration.
market, enabling surgeons to isolate and perform uterine tissue morcellation and extraction using the PneumoLiner containment device.
Results: There were no differences in patient demographics, enucleation time, morcellation time, or tissue volume removed between the two groups.
Laparoscopic pretransplant nephrectomy with morcellation in autosomic-dominant polycystic kidney disease patients with end-stage renal disease.
Disseminated leiomyomas occurring after laparoscopic morcellation of a myoma is a rare but reported entity.
3 Since the introduction of laparoscopic morcellation procedures few studies have found some complications.
2] There is also evidence that the incidence of this condition is increasing as a result of iatrogenic seeding of the peritoneal cavity after morcellation of leiomyoma(s) at the time of minimally invasive surgical procedures.
Food and Drug Administration came out with a statement that discourages the use of laparoscopic power morcellation in most hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures because there is a risk of spreading cancerous tissue beyond the uterus.
