Terumo Medical Corporation Obtains Withdrawal By Vascular Solutions Of The R-Band™ Radial Hemostasis Device

SOMERSET, N.J., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Terumo Medical Corporation (Terumo), today announced that it was pleased with the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey's Order approving an agreement of the parties under which Vascular Solutions Inc. will cease further manufacture, sales, and distribution of its R-Band™ Radial Hemostasis Device, pending litigation of Terumo's claims.

In February, Terumo filed a patent infringement lawsuit alleging that the R Band™ Radial Hemostasis Device infringes on U.S. patent and trademark rights held by Terumo Medical Corporation for its proprietary TR Band™ Radial Compression Device. The R-Band is distributed in the U.S. by Vascular Solutions and manufactured by Lepu Medical Technology. Terumo sought an injunction against further sales of the infringing product.  

"Terumo is extremely gratified with the Court's Order. We are thankful for the opportunity to successfully defend our TR Band™ device, which is a critical part of our transradial solutions portfolio," said James Rushworth, President, Terumo Interventional Systems and Onset Medical Corporation. "As a market leader, Terumo is committed to doing what is right for our business and, when appropriate, we will vigorously protect our investments, assets and intellectual property."

Terumo's market-leading TR Band™ Radial Compression Device is used to achieve patent hemostasis immediately following a transradial access diagnostic and intervention in the treatment of cardiac and vascular disease. The clear band is placed around the patient's wrist to effectively stop access-point bleeding. The TR Band™ features dual compression balloons that maintain precise pressure on the radial artery to ensure blood return without compromising local nerve structure. Transradial access interventions have been shown to significantly reduce bleeding complications by up to 75 percent when compared to femoral (through the groin) interventions.

As a market leader in entry site management and lesion access, TIS is committed to pursuing unique technologies designed to enhance treatment of coronary and peripheral endovascular diseases as well as driving strategic initiatives focused on Critical Limb Ischemia, Complex Coronary Intervention and Transradial Access.
