Medtronic patent award

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

AGA Medical must pay Medtronic $57 million in past damages and an 11% royalty on future U.S. sales of its Amplatzer Occluder and vascular plug product lines through 2018, following a San Francisco district court decision that the product lines infringe Medtronic's two "Jervis" patents, the firms said Aug. 6. AGA Medical plans to "vigorously defend" the case, and notes that a non-jury trial scheduled for later this year could alter the final outcome. Medtronic also has sued W.L. Gore, alleging infringement of the same patents
