    Man With Faulty Penile Implant Gets $400K


    Man With Faulty Penile Implant Gets $400K


    By RAY HENRY
    Associated Press Writer

    PROVIDENCE, R.I.

    A former handyman has won more than $400,000 in a lawsuit over a penile implant that gave him a 10-year erection.

    Charles "Chick" Lennon, 68, received the steel and plastic implant in about two years before Viagra went on the market. The Dura-II is designed to allow impotent men to position the penis upward for sex, then lower it.

    But Lennon could not position his penis downward. He said he could no longer hug people, ride a bike, swim or wear bathing trunks because of the pain and embarrassment. He has become a recluse and is uncomfortable being around his grandchildren, his lawyer said.

    In 2004, a jury awarded him $750,000. A judge called that excessive and reduced it to $400,000. On Friday, the Rhode Island Supreme Court affirmed that award in a ruling that turned on a procedural matter.

    "I don't know any man who for any amount of money would want to trade and take my client's life," said Jules D'Alessandro, Lennon's attorney. "He's not a whole person."

    A lawyer representing both Dura-II manufacturer Dacomed Corp. and the company's insurer declined to comment. Dacomed maintained that nothing was wrong with the implant.

    The implant consists of a series of plastic plates strung together with steel surgical wire, almost like a roll of wrapped coins. Springs press against the plates, creating enough surface tension to simulate an erection, D'Alessandro said.

    Lennon cannot get the implant removed because of health problems, including open-heart surgery, his lawyer said. Impotence drugs could not help Lennon even if he were able to have the device taken out, because tissue had be to removed for it to be implanted.

    Dacomed was later acquired by a California company whose sales dropped when Viagra was introduced on the market. The company filed for bankruptcy the following year.

    Wow, that guy really got the err...um...shaft from that doctor! In all seriousness though, it would have to be tough to be running around with an erection when you're 68 years old. The term dirty old man must be something he hears all too often.

    I don't know if I really want to know how this thing actually works, but the idea of a robotic style penis is kinda frightening, don't you think?

    I can't even begin to imagine what kind of a hassle a 10 year erection would be. It'd be like junior high school all over again, with strategically placed books, bags, loose fitting pants, etc. I don't think any amount of money would really be worth going through that.

    Yes. Even though my Superdrol cycle has caused my testicles to implode like a neutron star, I still get wood seeing that avatar.

    I would not take $400,000 for a ten year erection. One time I took some medication that gave me priapism. Let me tell you it is no fun when you have an erection you can't get rid of that is painful.

    And that's just for the ten years that have passed. He has a screwed up penis for the rest of his life to contend with.
