Morcellator Update (tool that spreads cancer . Hooman Noorchashm and Dr. Amy Reed shared an update on their anti-morcellation campaign (related petition1/petition 2). The morcellator is a surgical tool that spreads cancer in one out of 350 cases of women having a certain type of procedure. And while Johnson and Johnson has pulled their power morcellators off the market due to such safety concerns, there are some gynecologists who still prefer to use the tool because they feel the benefits outweigh the risk, Noorchashm reported. The FDA sometimes places marketing concerns ahead of patient safety when it comes to the approval of surgical devices, he added.
