Hello everyone,does anyone have an idea what rating va gives for compartment syndrome? I was diagnosed today with bilateral compartment syndrome and could not find any specific rating on the Va page. Thank you.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to revise the regulations that involve the Musculoskeletal System within the VA Schedule for Rating Disabilities (``VASRD'' or ``Rating Schedule''). VA proposes to rename certain diagnostic codes, revise rating criteria, give new rating guidance,...
I'm not sure you are going to find an average and unless your case is "average" the rating would not apply to you. I suggest you read some case law on VA compensation for comportment syndrome and that will give you a better idea of the ins and outs of rating your condition.
– Anterior compartment syndrome is a condition where the muscles in a part of the leg swells, cutting off blood circulation to the muscles. It is rated under one of the leg muscle codes, depending on which muscles are affected. See The Foot and Lower Leg Muscles and The Buttock, Hip, and Thigh Muscles pages for rating muscles of the leg. this is off Analogous and Equivalent Codes for Rating Military Disability .
