Court Ruling Favours Smith & Nephew In Patent Infringement Case With Arthrex
(RTTNews.com) - Smith & Nephew (SNN, SN.L) Thursday said the U.S. District Court in Oregon has issued certain rulings in its favor in the patent infringement case with Arthrex, Inc. As per the ruling, Arthrex has been ordered to stop selling its Bio-SutureTak and PEEK SutureTak products in the U.S.
In June 2011, a jury found that Arthrex's Bio-SutureTak, PEEK SutureTak, and certain Bio-PushLock and PEEK PushLock infringe the patent licensed to Smith & Nephew. The technology is being used in certain Smith & Nephew anchors used primarily in surgical repair of the shoulder.
