Powered Morcellators Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Laparoscopic morcellators are targeted towards three categories of minimally invasive surgery (MIS): general surgery, urology surgery and most commonly in gynecological surgery. Traditionally, laparoscopic resection devices are employed to excise malignant tissue masses from site of operation; however, with the reduction in the size of laparoscopic instruments used in MIS, removal of large-mass malignant tissues by way of small incisions can be cumbersome.

The massive decrease in morcellator sales in 2017 will not extend to upcoming years, unless the FDA decides to take further action. At this point, further FDA action seems unlikely. Most hospitals and surgeons have already made their decision to continue to morcellate or not, based on the evidence at hand. The remaining install base of hospitals that have chosen to continue morcellating will continue to do so in the future. So, following the steep decline in 2016, the powered morcellator market is expected to resume characteristic unit sales growth.
Laparoscopic morcellators are tubular in shape, 12 mm to 20 mm in diameter, and equipped with a hand piece and a blade. During a laparoscopy procedure, the morcellator is inserted through an incision in the abdominal area to access the detached tissue mass. Graspers are usually inserted into the hollow center of the morcellator to grasp the tissue firmly and feed it into the blade of the morcellator. This offers surgeons precision and control over the rate and degree of morcellation.

LiNA Medical developed its Xcise laparoscopic morcellator in 2010, which became available on the U.S. market early in 2011. The device is cordless, offering surgeons greater mobility during operation. Reviews from end-users have been positive regarding its weight. Karl Storz offers the benefit of a reposable device, such as its ROTOCUT G1 Morcellator and SAWALHE II SUPERCUT, to price-conscious hospitals and clinics. These devices have disposable blades that ensure sharpness during surgery, and a reusable handle. In the ROTOCUT G1 Morcellator, the gears are mated with the blade as a single unit. Olympus Gyrus ACM was the first manufacturer to market a bladeless laparoscopic morcellator: the PKS PlasmaSORD.
