CURRENT COMMENTARY: U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Guidance Regarding Morcellation of Leiomyomas: Well-Intentioned, But Is It Harmful for Women?

From the Desk of the AAGL President

Dear AAGL Member:

We are pleased to present to you recent work completed by an impressive group of committed physicians concerned about women’s health.  The Leiomyoma Morcellation Review Group is an independent group of concerned healthcare professionals who took from their own time to thoroughly review the literature on this controversial subject.  Using their time and expertise to review the evidence speaks to their commitment to providing quality gynecologic care to women. We present here the open letter they sent to the FDA as well as the Current Commentary that will be published in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

We commend ACOG for releasing a statement and join with them in continuing a careful, thoughtful examination and monitoring of the research surrounding tissue extraction moving forward.
