Veins and sleep quality:


A study published in Wounds (May 2012) reviewed sleep quality in patients with venous ulcers on their legs and found that most patients with venous ulcers experienced poor sleep quality.  The paper was authored by Geraldo Salome et. al from the Division of Plastic Surgery Federal University of Sao Paulo, Brazil and provides a descriptive analysis of sleep affected by vein disease.  According to Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian of the Santa Monica Vein Center (310) 998-5533, there is well documented research showing that abnormal varicose veins can affect quality of life and cause symptoms of pain, discomfort, leg cramping, throbbing, heaviness, and swelling. 


If you have varicose veins and wish to have them treated, please call our patient care coordinator at (310) 998-5533.  Our office provides complete spider and varicose vein treatments to patients in the Los Angeles area.
