Last reviewed for CCPS 12 March 2008.

Preliminary questions [20505]

22393 there is some evidence that severe right-sided cardiac failure may be a factor in the development or worsening of the condition under consideration.

20538 the veteran has had severe right-sided cardiac failure at some time.

39273 the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least six months at some time.

39272

the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure as a consequence of an illness or injury which is identifiable.

20539the veteran has established the causal connection between the severe right-sided cardiac failure and VEA service for cirrhosis of the liver.

20540the veteran has established the causal connection between the severe right-sided cardiac failure and VEA service for the clinical onset of cirrhosis of the liver.

20543the veteran has established the causal connection between the severe right-sided cardiac failure and eligible service for the clinical onset of cirrhosis of the liver.

or

20542the veteran has established the causal connection between the severe right-sided cardiac failure and operational service for the clinical onset of cirrhosis of the liver.

or

7334

the clinical onset of the condition under consideration occurred after the end of the veteran's last period of VEA service.

7335

the condition under consideration permanently worsened.

20541the veteran has established the causal connection between the severe right-sided cardiac failure and VEA service for the clinical worsening of cirrhosis of the liver.

20545the veteran has established the causal connection between the severe right-sided cardiac failure and eligible service for the clinical worsening of cirrhosis of the liver.

or

20544the veteran has established the causal connection between the severe right-sided cardiac failure and operational service for the clinical worsening of cirrhosis of the liver.

Clinical onset and operational service [20542]

20546

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least six months.

20547

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least six months within the five years before the clinical onset of cirrhosis of the liver.

20549the identified illness or injury, as a consequence of which the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure, is causally related to operational service.

Clinical onset and eligible service [20543]

39274

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least twelve months.

39275

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least twelve months within the five years before the clinical onset of cirrhosis of the liver.

20550the identified illness or injury, as a consequence of which the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure, is causally related to eligible service.

Clinical worsening and operational service [20544]

20546

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least six months.

20548

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least six months within the five years before the clinical worsening of cirrhosis of the liver.

20549the identified illness or injury, as a consequence of which the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure, is causally related to operational service.

22158

the clinical onset of cirrhosis of the liver occurred prior to that part of operational service to which the identified illness or injury, as a consequence of which the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure, is causally related.

Clinical worsening and eligible service [20545]

39274

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least twelve months.

39276

as a consequence of the identified illness or injury, the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure for a continuous period of at least twelve months within the five years before the clinical worsening of cirrhosis of the liver.

20550the identified illness or injury, as a consequence of which the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure, is causally related to eligible service.

22159

the clinical onset of cirrhosis of the liver occurred prior to that part of eligible service to which the identified illness or injury, as a consequence of which the veteran had severe right-sided cardiac failure, is causally related.
