The ICD code S920 is used to code Calcaneal fracture
Calcaneal fracture, also known as lover's fracture and Don Juan fracture, is a fracture of the calcaneus. It is usually caused by a fall from height when one lands on their feet. These fractures represent approximately 2% of all fractures but 60% of tarsal bone fractures. The name lover's fracture is derived from the fact that a lover may jump from great heights while trying to escape from the lover's spouse.
