Not common.: The nutcracker syndrome is due to compression of the left renal vein between the superior mesenteric artery and the aorta. This is a very uncommon syndrome and has vague symptoms of abdominal pain and blood in the urine. A cta would help to make the diagnosis. The diagnosis is not easy to make and you may want to see a vascular surgeon.
