Clearing uterine fibroids through cryomyolysis

Uterine fibroids are benign growths in the uterus that might create few to no symptoms, especially when the masses are still small. Some prefer to have their uterine fibroids removed through a laparoscopic procedure involving the use of a power morcellator. Unfortunately, manufacturers of this device have recently been under fire over allegations that power morcellators spread theretofore undetected cancer tissues in the uterus, causing uterine cancer.
Apart from laparoscopic procedures involving a power morcellator, doctors may also recommend cryomyolysis as an option to clear small uterine fibroids. During this procedure, an electrified needle freezes the benign mass. This would then disrupt the flow of blood to the fibroids, cutting off their oxygen supply and nutrition.
If you think a diagnosis of uterine cancer has stemmed from a laparoscopic procedure involving a power morcellator, you might be eligible to file a claim against the maker of the dangerous medical device.
