FEDERAL JUDGE UPHOLDS UNITED STATES SURGICAL INJUNCTION AGAINST ORIGIN

 NORWALK, Conn., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Leon C. Hirsch, chairman of United States Surgical Corporation (NYSE: USS), announced today, that on Feb. 3, 1993, U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker, Northern District of California, denied Origin Medsystems, Inc., a subsidiary of Eli Lilly & Co., request to reconsider and stay his earlier decision which immediately removed their trocar product from the market. In confirming his earlier findings of misappropriation and patent infringement by Origin against USS, Judge Walker stated that Origin lacks a substantial case on the merits.
 Judge Walker's decision reconfirms his order removing Origin's trocar from the market and confirms the company's belief that Origin willfully infringed USS' technology.
 United States Surgical Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer and marketer of surgical staplers, the leader in the growing field of minimally invasive surgery and a recent entrant into the suture market.
