US surgical products company ArthroCare is suing UK manufacturer Smith & Nephew's US endoscopic subsidiary over the newly launched Dyonics bipolar radiofrequency arthroscopic device. The Dyonics device was launched in the US two weeks ago, "in collaboration" with Valleylab, a division of Tyco Healthcare and leading electrosurgical manufacturer. However, Valleylab has not been named in the lawsuit.
