Biomedical Engineer for Balloon Catheter Infringement Case

Case Description:

A biomedical engineer was sought for a patent infringement case involving balloon dilation catheters. Both parties were major players in the healthcare industry heavily invested in biomedical engineering device-based medical therapies, primarily for cardiac surgery and vascular procedures. Claimants alleged infringement based on the design and shape of their balloon dilation catheter. A biomedical engineer was requested to consult on similarities in design and to opine as to the state of the art in biomedical engineering and cardiovascular devices.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate biomedical engineers with mechanical / biomedical fluids backgrounds and with specific experience with blood flow and/or medical devices as they relate to the technology of balloon dilation catheters. As an expert biomedical engineer, the client sought an expert to perform a forensic analysis and testify as to similarities and distinctions in engineering aspects to other biomedical devices.
