PR9.NET August 09, 2007 - USA/Newark, Ohio Jeffrey A. Oster, DPM, is the 2006 recipient of the Basham Literary Prize given by "Chiropody Review", the official journal of the British Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. This annual prize is given to the author of the best article published in this bi-monthly professional journal.
The Basham Literary Prize was awarded to Dr. Oster for his article on "Charcot Joint" which was published in the May/June 2006 issue of Chiropody Review.
Dr. Jeffrey Oster writes that Charcot joints occur when the ability to sense deep pain is lost or diminished. As a result of the inability to sense pain, small fractures begin to develop in areas of stress such as the arch of the foot. The normal response to a fracture is swelling and increased blood flow (reflex vasodilatation) to the affected area of bone. The increase in blood flow tends to 'wash away' calcium from the fracture site, resulting in weakening of the bone and further fractures. If the normal protective mechanism, pain, remains absent, a cycle of increasing fracture activity begins with progressive collapse of the supporting bone.
