Intracerebral haemorrhage - Haematological disorder associated with excessive bleeding tendency Factor

The following list contains the conditions defined by the RMA as being haematological disorders associated with an excessive bleeding tendency:

  •  aplastic anaemia; or
  •  bleeding disorder secondary to snake bite; or
  •  bleeding disorder secondary to vitamin K deficiency; or
  •  disseminated intravascular coagulation; or
  •  essential thrombocythaemia; or
  •  thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura; or
  •  inherited coagulation protein disorders associated with excessive bleeding tendency; or
  •  leukaemia; or
  •  plasma cell dyscrasias; or
  •  posttransfusion purpura; or
  •  qualitative platelet defects associated with coagulation defect; or
  •  severe liver disease; or
  •  sickle cell disease;  or
  •  thrombocytopenia; or
  •  thrombotic thrombocytopaenic purpura

If a veteran or member had a condition associated with an excessive bleeding tendency he or she would have needed significant medical attention at some time.  Such medical treatment would normally be recorded in doctors' notes and/or hospital records.  However, these records may have been destroyed or can no longer be obtained.  Therefore, if there is a reliable history of appropriate medical treatment at a particular time, this generally will be accepted, unless there is contradictory evidence.  Seek medical advice if it is unclear whether the claimed symptoms and treatment at that time can be attributed to a condition associated with an excessive bleeding tendency rather than to some other condition.

Preliminary questions [12590]

12954 there is some evidence that a haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency may be a factor in the development of the condition under consideration, a cerebrovascular accident.

12762 the veteran has had a haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency at some time.

12763 the haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency is an illness or injury which is identifiable. [Default true]

25423 the veteran had the identified illness or injury, a haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency, at the time of the clinical onset of the condition under consideration, a cerebrovascular accident.

12765 the veteran has established the causal connection between the haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency and VEA service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

12766   the veteran has established the causal connection between the haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency and operational service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

or

12767   the veteran has established the causal connection between the haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency and eligible service for the clinical onset of cerebrovascular accident.

Clinical onset and operational service [12766]

12768 the identified illness or injury, a haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency, is causally related to operational service.

Clinical onset and eligible service [12767]

12769 the identified illness or injury, a haematological disorder associated with an excessive bleeding tendency, is causally related to eligible service.
