One down, two to go: Medtronic scores small TAVI win against Edwards

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Medtronic has been cleared by a German court of infringing a patent owned by Edwards that relates to transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) technology. The ruling is a surprising twist in an ongoing battle between the two TAVI rivals; earlier this month, analysts were putting their money on Edwards – the current TAVI leader with Sapien – winning an injunction that would prohibit Medtronic from selling its CoreValve device in Germany (, 11 June 2013).
