In order to avoid larger abdominal incisions or colpotomy uterine power morcellation has been a challenging field of discussions also at hysterectomies with many contradictory issues. Morcellation is defined as division and removal in small pieces in the Merriam Webster dictionary. When laparoscopic or hysteroscopic operations are performed today frequently electromechanical morcellation is used, which allows removal of uterine fibroids and uterine tissue through port sites. However, morcellation procedures can potentially cause intra operative dissemination of pathological uterine tissue into the abdominal cavity, especially in unsuspected malignant cases, which may lead to a spreading of the disease and may have negative clinical consequences. The purpose of this editorial dealing with hysterectomies for benign cases is to evaluate dangers of power morcellation.
