The Court ordered a twelve month stay of the injunction granted when it found one of Boston’s patents concerning a transcatheter heart valve (THV) valid and infringed by Edwards’ medical device, in order to allow for the re-training of clinicians to use non-infringing THVs. The Court also held that, even after that stay, the injunction should be qualified such that Edwards’ THVs could continue to be used for patients for whom there is no alternative (on condition that clinicians signed a declaration to this effect).
