Everest forceps patent claims upheld:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US Patent and Trademark Office has upheld the patent claims of Everest Medical over its bipolar cutting forceps. The move comes after a re-examination was requested by the company, following a discovery of prior art. There was much at stake for the company as it derives around a third of its revenues from the product. Of the patent claims, 21 of 23 were upheld; the two which were rejected had not been incorporated into the commercial device.
