Gynecare Power Morcellator Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon is facing  a product liability lawsuits filed by  women diagnosed with leimoyosarcoma following a laparoscopic hysterectomy.  New studies show that the company’s Gynecare power morcellators can cause  hidden uterine cancer to be spread throughout the body.

A complaint  was filed  indicating that a female  victim  now must take oral chemotherapy to keep leiomyosarcoma cancer  from spreading  by the hysterectomy power Morcellator  from killing her.

The manufacturer failed to adequately disclose the risk of cancer following laparoscopic hysterectomy morcellation, as the device may take hidden sarcomas contained within the uterus and chop up the tissue, causing a rapid dissemination of the aggressive cancer.

Power Morcellator Lawsuit Filed

During her hysterectomy in November 2008, Davis indicates that doctors used a Gynecare morcellator to cut up the uterus through a small incision in the abdomen. However, a biopsy of the removed tissue taken during the surgery was found to contain leiomyosarcoma cancer cells, which doctors were unable to discover or diagnose before the procedure.

As a result of the leiomyosarcoma diagnosis, Davis underwent multiple cycles of chemotherapy, but by April 11, three large masses were detected in her abdomen and pelvis, confirming that the cancer had spread. She underwent additional chemotherapy and now continues to take harsh oral chemotherapy drugs.

Morcellators have become  popular for use during hysterectomy and uterine fibroid removal surgicsl procedures.  It was discovered that the Morcellators have a high risk of spreading aggressive cancer cells that may be hidden within the uterus of some women, which doctors are unable to detect or diagnose before the surgery.

Davis’s complaint is one of a growing number of laparoscopic morcellator cancer lawsuits filed against Ethicon and other manufacturers of devices sold in recent years. Each of the cases raise similar allegations, indicating that manufacturers sold a defective and unreasonably dangerous medical device, failing to warn about the link between uterine fibroid surgery and cancer.

Power Morcellator MDL

All Ethicon  power morcellator lawsuits  have been consolidated  under  District Judge Kathryn H. Vratil in the District of Kansas.

Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuit Helpline

Talcum powder has been a  trusted household product for years. Did you know that the talc in talcom powder may be responsible for having  caused your  ovarian cancer.

In  1971 a study  revealed  that talc particles  move and can become embedded in your ovarian tissues.  40  years without restrictions or warnings of any kind has resulted in unsuspecting victims developing ovarian cancer. Did your mom use Johnson’s baby powder to dry up?

We have a special helpline for  claims from women, like your mom or sister, who developed ovarian cancer after using a Johnson & Johnson powder product.

How Is Talcum Powder Related To Ovarian Cancer?
When Talc is  ground into powder is used on the genitals, talc particles can travel into the ovaries and remain trapped for years. These particles can cause inflammation and lead to the growth of ovarian cancer cells very similar to asbestos related mesothelioma in the lungs.

Lawsuit Won In Favor of the Plaintiff
The first  talc baby powder cancer lawsuit was  won in 2013. A federal jury recently found that talcum contained in some Johnson & Johnson powders contributed to a woman’s ovarian cancer.

The plaintiff in this case was diagnosed with ovarian cancer  after about 30 years of using  Shower-to-Shower body powder-as part of her personal hygiene routine. The jury found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn her of a link between the use of talc-based powder for feminine hygiene and an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

This outcome sets the stage for thousands of women who have developed ovarian cancer after using talc-based products.
