Surgical Laser wins and loses on patent appeal:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Surgical Laser Technologies has had one of the decisions in its three-year patent battle with Trimedyne upheld on appeal, while another decision has been reversed and sent back to a lower court for a hearing. The Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania-based Surgical Laser's contact laser tip technology has been cleared of infringing Irvine, California-based Trimedyne's hot metal tip patent. Surgical Laser is playing down the fact that its side-firing free beam probe could infringe another Trimedyne patent, saying that it is only used on one urology instrument and urology is now less important to the company.
