An Orange County surgical devices maker has won $20.5 million against industry giant U.S. Surgical Corp. in a patent infringement case involving abdominal tubes used for less-invasive operations. Privately held Applied Medical Resources Corp. in Laguna Hills had won a jury verdict of more than $15 million and an unusual finding that U.S. Surgical had willfully violated Applied's patents. The finding gave the judge who presided over the case the option of trebling the damages.

Call him the Will Rogers of small business. Said Hilal sits in his sparsely furnished office at Applied Medical Resources and uses homespun, common-sense terms to describe his philosophy in building a small medical device manufacturing firm from the ground up.
