Hysterectomy Device With Ties to Cancer Is Pulled From Market
Johnson & Johnson has announced they are pulling a device used during hysterectomies, known as a power morcellator, from the global market as the device has been tied with spreading and accelerating the growth of underacted cancer in women.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Aministration (FDA) issued a warning to doctors about the device. Johnson & Johnson then suspended use of the device in April. The FDA warned the medical community that the device may spread a form of cancer beyond the uterus and could result in lowering women’s chances of survival.
