As I stood staring down from the ledge of the tallest roof top; I saw two world offered to me, hell and hell-on-earth. Peace is found in the free fall. | Palestine.

Power morcellation can allow surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery of large tissue that otherwise could not be pulled through small incisions. However, power morcellation is currently under critical review by the FDA as they consider banning the device due to the potentially life-threatening risks associated with their use, especially during laparoscopic gynecological procedures.
One of the most alarming risks associated with power morcellators is the potential for the device to spread and upstage undetected malignant uterine tissue during a laparoscopic hysterectomy or myomectomy, significantly worsening a patient’s prognosis. While this risk is difficult to calculate, the FDA has concluded that there is no reliable method for preoperatively predicting whether a woman with fibroids may have a uterine sarcoma. Based on a Quantitative Assessment of power morcellation released in April, the FDA states that 1 in 350 women undergoing hysterectomy or myomectomy for the treatment of fibroids has an undetected uterine cancer, such as leiomyosarcoma (LMS), a particularly aggressive uterine sarcoma with an already poor prognosis.
 

Being that it is National Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month, I was asked to share this information on my blog to increase women’s awareness of the risks associated with surgeries that include power morcellation.  Get more information here: Source
