A Delaware jury has issued a verdict in Guidant's favour in a lawsuit against Medtronic over patents covering stent technology. The jury found that Medtronic stents, including the cobalt alloy Driver stent that forms the platform for its development-stage drug-eluting device, infringed Guidant's Lau patents. It also ruled that the Lau patents were valid.
