Often the symptoms are mild, with the. A retrospective review by Cheng et al showed that upper extremity necrotizing fasciitis has a high mortality rate. In their review, about 35% of patients died. A state of altered consciousness and respiratory distress at initial presentation were found to be statistically significant factors for eventual mortality
This gives us a combined rating of 31% for the veteran's bilateral conditions. The 31% is the result of rounding 30.8% to the nearest whole number. To get the veteran's final combined rating we combine the 31% with the veteran's back condition rated at 40%. This gives us 58.6, or 60%. Overall, the bilateral factor has the effect of.

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a severe, rare, potentially lethal soft tissue infection that develops in the scrotum and perineum, the abdominal wall, or the extremities. The infection progresses rapidly, and septic shock may ensue; hence, the mortality rate is high (median mortality 32.2%). Prognosis becomes poorer in the presence of co-morbidities, such as diabetes mellitus, immunosuppression. The AME's diagnosis of CRPS for the upper extremity did not fall within the requirements of Chapter 16: The Upper Extremity.
