The Court of Appeal held that AGA’s patent was not infringed by Occlutech in a case of septal occlusion devices, which feature braided metal strands and have a collapsed configuration for delivery through a channel in a patient’s body.Occlutech’s devices, which feature strands that are welded at one end of the device were found to fall outside of the scope of AGA’s patent, which was construed to be limited to devices which clamp the strands on the opposed ends of the device.
