Volcano Corporation Files Counterclaim Asserting St. Jude Infringes Three Volcano Patents; Answers St. Jude's Patent Infringement Claims
Date:9/20/2010

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Volcano Corporation today said that it believes the patent infringement claims brought against the company by St. Jude Medical Systems AB and its affiliated companies are without merit.  In a filing made today in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, Volcano denies allegations that its PrimeWire(R) products infringe any valid claim of St. Jude's asserted patents.  Moreover, as described in detail in its answer, Volcano believes that two of the asserted St. Jude patents are unenforceable because they were obtained through acts of fraud on the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  Specifically, Volcano believes that the individuals involved in securing these two patents knowingly withheld from the USPTO a patent describing the pioneering work of scientists at Volcano's predecessor company, Cardiometrics, Inc.

"As the innovator of these guide wire technologies, Volcano intends to se
