Laparoscopic Power Morcellation and Gynecologic Surgery: Lets Not Jump to Conclusions
It is impossible to conduct any surgical procedure without risk. We need to be solution driven and evidence based to not draw to poor conclusions. A frequent quote from Samuel Butler: “There is a big difference between what we know and what we think we know, we need to learn more before we jump to conclusions”. Let’s not be reactive, but proactive! We need to acknowledge the FDA warning regarding the use of LPM during LH and LM; however, let’s also advocate for a national tumor registry. This would go a long way to identify clinical factors that may reliably detect US and LMS where currently there are none.
