Question for anybody. Thanks.

I had 10% SC hypertension 2 years ago on retirement. The hypertension has progressed to hypertensive heart disease (left enlarged ventiicular with ejection fraction of 47%).

Is it possible that the origional award of 10% could be upgraded since this is a progression of the origional hypertension? Have all the reports to support the latest findings are hypertension related.

Heart disease is accociated with HTN. 47 percent EF is a 60 percent rating with the current HTN rating still at a separate 10 percent, ( Not Pyramiding)
This claim should be a slam dunk.

What diagnosed the Heart disease, Echo or Cath?

George, I hope your claim moves quicker than mine. In Aug 09 I filed a claim for heart disease secondary to my sc hypertension (0%). My left anterior descending coronary artery is 99% blocked; I had to have emergency heart bypass surgery, and I thought that this would be a no-brainer. For some reason, the VA has stalled on my claim. They scheduled my C&P exams pretty quickly (Echo, EKG, X-rays, Stress test, etc), but once QTC sent their findings to the VA on 14 Dec 09, things came to a screeching halt. I don't even receive those obligatory "we're still working on your claim" letters anymore. Nothing, nada.
