Judge upholds jury verdict; KCI loses on vacuum bandage

from AP:

A federal court judge from the Western District of Texas upheld a jury verdict delivered earlier this month that BlueSky's Versatile 1 System, a negative-pressure wound therapy device, did not directly infringe on Kinetic Concepts' patents for a similar device, the VAC, according to McClanahan & Clearman LLP on Aug. 30.


A different concept is the use of drains in surgery wherein a surgeon places 1 or 2 drains (called Redons -suction drains). Vacuum bandages draw blood to the surface of the wound.
