KFx Medical, LLC. Sues Stryker, Inc. for Patent Infringement


KFx Medical, LLC. announced it has sued Stryker, Inc. (NYSE:SYK) for
its continued infringement of US Patent number 7,585,311 and related
patents for knotless double row rotator cuff repair.

In 2015, when KFx successfully defended these patents versus Arthrex,
Inc., Arthrex paid in excess of $35m in damages and interest for its
infringement of these same KFx Knotless Double Row Fixation patents and
fought KFx through the appellate court and was ultimately denied any
further review by the Supreme Court of the United States.

KFx Medical, LLC has 5 agreements that license the same patents to other
medical device companies, giving them the right to promote the use of
products and techniques for knotless double row rotator cuff repair as
claimed in US Patent number 7,585,311 and related patents and
applications for the life of those patents.
