Association between power morcellation and mortality in women with unexpected uterine cancer undergoing hysterectomy or myomectomy.
Despite concerns that power morcellation may adversely affect prognosis of patients with occult uterine cancer, empirical evidence has been limited and inconclusive. In this study, the investigators aimed to determine whether uncontained power morcellation at the time of hysterectomy or myomectomy was associated with increased mortality risk in women with occult uterine cancer.
