WILSON, J. The self-insurer appeals from a decision in which an administrative judge awarded the employee benefits for permanent and total incapacity under G. L. c. 152, § 34A, upon finding that his work-related medical disability had worsened. The self-insurer contends that the impartial medical evidence does not support the judge’s finding of medical worsening, and that the judge’s vocational findings were inadequate. Although the evidence is somewhat equivocal, we agree with the judge that the impartial physician’s opinion sufficiently establishes medical worsening. We also see no need to recommit the case for further vocational findings under the circumstances presented here. We therefore affirm the decision.
