AGA Medical Holdings has filed a patent infringement suit against W.L. Gore & Associates, alleging that Gore infringed upon its No. 5,994,738 patent covering its Amplatzer transcatheter occlusion devices used to treat structural heart defects.

The Minneapolis-based AGA is seeking damages and an injunction that would prohibit the Newark, Del.-based Gore from marketing the Gore Helex Septal Occluder in the U.S. and abroad.
