Arthrex Inc. of Naples, FL enjoined

In June 2008 a federal court in D. Oregon determined that Arthrex willfully infringed on Smith & Nephew's patent by marketing and selling certain types of suture anchors used in various surgeries, including shoulder surgery. The jury awarded Smith & Nephew $14.7 million for past infringement through 2005. Now, Arthrex is enjoined from manufacturing and selling the infringing Bio-SutureTak and PEEK SutureTak anchors, and the district court will not stay the injunction pending Arthrex's appeal.
