VNUS files venous reflux disease patent infringement lawsuits against AngioDynamics.

VNUS Medical Technologies, Inc. (San Jose, CA), a leading provider of medical devices for the minimally invasive treatment of venous reflux disease, has asserted patent infringement claims in the United States District Court, Northern District of California, against AngioDynamics, Inc. and Vascular Solutions, Inc., respectively.

AngioDynamics and Vascular Solutions market endovenous laser ablation products for use in procedures which VNUS believes infringe several of its patents. VNUS is seeking an injunction prohibiting AngioDynamics and Vascular Solutions from selling these products, in addition to monetary damages. These claims were added to the lawsuit that VNUS brought against Diomed Holdings, Inc. in July 2005, and are based on the same patents that are asserted against Diomed.

VNUS is a leading provider of medical devices for the minimally invasive treatment of venous reflux disease, a progressive condition caused by incompetent vein valves in the leg. VNUS sells the Closure system, which consists of a proprietary radiofrequency generator and proprietary disposable endovenous catheters and devices to close diseased veins through the application of temperature-controlled RF energy.
