COSTIGAN, J. The employee appeals from the fourth hearing decision filed in his case,1 in which an administrative judge denied his claim for § 34A permanent and total incapacity benefits for bilateral shoulder injuries, or, in the alternative, § 35 temporary partial incapacity benefits for his 1988 left shoulder injury. We summarily affirm the judge's denial of the § 34A claim, as well as his findings that the employee's alleged neck, low back and left knee complaints, and the traumatic amputation of three fingers sustained in a power saw accident at home, were unrelated to either of his compensable shoulder injuries. However, we recommit the case for further subsidiary findings of fact as to the employee's left shoulder-related partial incapacity, and what, if any, weekly benefits he is entitled to receive as a result of that injury.
