Medtronic v. Tyco

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

California federal district court grants preliminary injunction against spinal fusion cage rival Surgical Dynamics (a division of Tyco's U.S. Surgical business) prohibiting it from selling its Ray TFC spinal implant fusion cage. Medtronic alleges that the device infringes patents for its Inter Fix threaded spinal fusion device. The injunction, which was announced Aug. 16 and reinforces an April 16 federal appeals court reversal in Medtronic's favor (1"The Gray Sheet" May 3, p. 19), is temporary pending completion of patent validity trial proceedings
