Monday, April 02, 2007 --- Medical device maker Medtronic Inc. hailed an appeals court ruling Monday that its new surgical screws do not infringe on any claims of a patent held by Biomet subsidiary Cross Medical Products. 

The long-running patent dispute is not over yet, however, with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit sending an infringement claim against the company’s original screws back to the lower court for reconsideration.
