MAQUET Cardiovascular Responds to Terumo Complaint About VASOVIEW Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting Systems
Date:9/2/2008

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- MAQUET Cardiovascular LLC announced today that it was served with a complaint filed by Terumo Cardiovascular Systems Corp. (Terumo CSC) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint alleges that MAQUET's VASOVIEW Endoscopic Vessel Harvesting Systems infringe a certain U.S. patent.

In April 2008, MAQUET filed patent infringement complaints against Terumo CSC and Terumo Corporation with the International Trade Commission (ITC) and in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, alleging that Terumo's VirtuoSaph(TM) endoscopic vessel harvesting system infringes two MAQUET U.S. patents. The ITC case seeks to exclude the infringing products from importation into the United States and the district court case seeks monetary damages and an injunction. The complaint filed by Terumo will not affect the actions filed by MAQUET.

MAQUET will continue to protect and enforce its intellectual property rights, and will aggressively defend the law suit filed by Terumo.
