Listing of impairments – Social Security Benefits for Endocarditis | Port Richey Social Security Disability Attorney

There is no specific listing for Social Security benefits for endocarditis as it is evaluated under Listing 4.07 Valvular Heart disease.

Endocarditis is an infection of your heart’s lining or heart valves. It can damage and destroy your heart valves.

It occurs when bacteria in your bloodstream lodge on abnormal heart valves or other damaged heart tissue. If you had a pre-existing heart condition such as a congenital heart defect, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, rheumatic fever that’s caused heart valve damage, or an artificial heart valve, you’re at increased risk for developing endocarditis.

The American Heart Association suggests that patients at increased risk for endocarditis take antibiotics before certain dental, G.I. or genitourinary tract procedures. About 29,000 cases of endocarditis are diagnosed a year.

Your eligibility for Social Security disability benefits for endocarditis will require you to meet the listing requirements of 4.07 or the medical/vocational requirements.
