[322 Or.App. 767] EGAN, J.

In a petition for judicial review, claimant, who suffered a compensable injury at work, challenges an order of the Workers' Compensation Board affirming an order of an administrative law judge (AL J) upholding employer's denial of claimant's new/omitted medical condition claims for a right shoulder rotator cuff tear and a right biceps tendon rupture. Contrary to claimant's contention, the board did not fail to decide claimant's challenge to the denial of the rotator cuff tear; the board simply affirmed the AL J's order upholding the denial without writing further. Substantial evidence supports the board's determination that that claim is not compensable. See ORS 183.482(8)(c) (setting forth substantial evidence standard). Substantial evidence also supports the board's determination upholding the denial of the new/omitted medical condition claim for a biceps tendon rupture, based on the board's determination that claimant did not establish the existence of the claimed condition.
