Lover fracture

Lover Fracture

A lover fracture, also known as Don Juan fracture, is a type of calcaneal fracture. They may be intra- or extra-articular.

The name lover fracture is derived from the fact that a suitor may jump from great heights while trying to escape from the lover’s spouse. There is an important association between lover fractures and burst fractures of the lumbar spine.
