Nutcracker syndrome

What is Nutcracker syndrome?

It is caused due to compression of the left renal vein, most commonly between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery, with impaired blood outflow often accompanied by distention of the distal portion of the vein. It results in elevated left renal vein pressure and possible collateral vein development.
