What Types of Vascular Diseases Win Approval from Social Security

Claimants with vascular diseases often fare well when presenting their claims to Social Security disability administrative law judges.   SSD decision makers understand that vascular disorders represent serious medical problems that usually make it extremely difficult for an afflicted claimant to function reliably in a work setting.

The Vascular Disease Foundation identifies twenty-two major categories of circulatory system disorders:

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
Aordic Dissection Pulmonary Embolism
Buerger’s Disease Portal Hypertension
Carotid Artery Disease Post-Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS)
Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) Raynaud’s Disease
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) Renovascular Hypertension (RAS)
Congenital Vascular Malformation (CVM) Stroke
Deep Vein Thrombosis Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm
Fibromuscular Dysplasia Thrombophilia
Lymphedema Varicose Veins
Mesenteric Artery Disease Vasculitis
