@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset.

And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

Is an Aneurysm compensated seperate from IHD?

I have 10% for Peripheral Neuropathy
10% for CAD
10% for Hypertension

What type 0f aneurism is it?

This is a long read and the vet was denied for higher aortic aneurism but gets 60% for it.

This concerns me:
I have 10% for Peripheral Neuropathy
10% for CAD
10% for Hypertension

What do they attribute the PN to?

Are these disabilities stemming directly from your service (as compared to any presumptive disability?)

How old is that rating for everything?

Has any doctor explained to you what has caused this aneurism?

Have you had any recent ECHO done?

If it is an aortic aneurism ,the first line of this study might help get it service connected as secondary to the CAD.

Still this will surely need a strong medical opinion too but this is possible.

Also it is possible, per this article from Mayo clinic
http://www.mayoclini...ressure/HI00062
that your SC hypertension could have been a factor in causing the aneurism.

I am not a doctor but feel you should definitely file the claim and ask them for increase in rating for the CAD and the HBP as if either one (I would claim both as cause of this) caused this, it is a secondary condition that would warrant either higher CAD rating or separate rating for the aneurism.

Aneurisms can be treated successfully in many cases so that too would influence any rating.

This will take medical evidence of the link from your SC CAD and/or HBPto the aneurism but this is possible and might even be determined already in your clinical records by your treating doctor.

I went back to an older post you had here:

"Would not Nehmir and Agent Orange be a seperate claim as I had filed back in 2000 for CAD & Heart Disease."

Nehmer would only kick in if you had been denied a claim prior to the date of the CAD award you got and,in fact, the award was for ischemic heart disease which I am assuming here is what you have.

"My Doctors report shows Unstable Angina
Coronary Artery Disease
S/P Bypass graft
Mixed Hyperlipidema
Hypertension
Injection Fraction of 52%
Heart attack in July 4th 1998 with a five way bypass
Heart attack in 2009 and in Mather Hospital for 4 days.
They have ordered another C& P by a NPT for January 7, 2011."

Can you scan and post here the results of the C & P of Jan 2011?(cover personal stuff)

How did you file the present claim?

as to the wording of it.....

I am assuming the bypass surgery was due to atherosclerosis (plaque )? and the hyperlipedimia

Did the C & P exam of Jan 2011 reveal an Ejection fraction different from the 52%?

Hello Berta,

The reports state the following;
The patient has an LV ejection fraction measured at 50%
Stress test results (METs) 3-5 gets chest pressure make him stop walking after 1/2 block
Diagnosis: Coronary Artery Disease with MI & CABG x 5v in 1998. has dizziness, has unstable angina, and
has chronic daily chest pressure sometimes must take nitro 2 times then gets bad headaches from it.
The Doctor also tested for ED and tied that to my CAD and nitro in the report.

I just had testing on my aneurism and it grew from a .3 to a .4
They said the aneurism was incorporated with my CAD and tied to Agent Orange.

All my disabilites were awarded tied to Agent Orange and PTSD

I do have a claim in with Nehmir and sent them what records I have. They have requested my C file and they are waiting for it to be released.
My wife did file a claim in 2000 for CAD which has a date stamp on it, and a letter from the VA stating that they would provide medical care for my disabilites
no letter of award for disability on CAD.
Might be in the C file
.
IRIS responds;
NOD on April 22,2009 for P&T
NOD November 24,2009 for arteriosclerotic heart disease and hypertensive vascular disease
NOD November 5, 2010 for SMC
Thanks for all the information and help. Everyone is a blessing.

Thank You for the information.

The VA has linked the disabilities to Agent Orange / PTSD
Stress, PTSD and Agent Orange as cause.
Thw awards are a couple of years old.

Thanks
