In April of 2014, the FDA issued a statement about the use of power morcellators as part of hysterectomy procedures that prompted Ethicon to issue a worldwide market withdrawal of its morcellator lines but the procedures themselves were allowed to continue. By November, the FDA went one step short of a total ban on morcellator use by warning doctors not to use them in hysterectomies and fibroid removal surgeries. The warning suggested that the devices should not be used in the vast majority of surgeries in women and morcellation should be the very last resort due to the associated health risks.
