The Department of Veterans Affairs proposes to amend the portion of the Schedule for Rating Disabilities that addresses the genitourinary system.

The proposed rule reflects the most up-to-date medical knowledge and clinical practice of nephrology and urology specialties, as well as comments from subject matter experts and the public garnered during a public forum held January 27-28, 2011.
