Congress prods GAO to probe morcellator cancer risk

Several members of Congress simply had enough when it came to hearing about reports of laparoscopic power morcellators actually spreading unsuspected uterine cancers in the process of performing hysterectomies and myomectomies. They told the U.S. General Accounting Office in writing Aug. 7 to get to the bottom of how the relationship between the use of the morcellator and cancer was discovered in 2014, more than 20 years after the minimally invasive surgical devices were on the market. GAO took Congress seriously and announced Sept. 1 that indeed it would investigate.
