Dr. Vance Harris answered:

what is nutcracker syndrome?

Pinched vein.

Aorta
Nutcracker syndrome (NCS) is caused by a compression of the left renal vein between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery. This pinching raises venous pressure on the left side and can lead to high venous pressure in the renal pelvis, ureter, and gonadal vein. Those can cause discomfort as well.

How typical is the nutcracker syndrome?

Not common.

Stringio
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.

Dr. Stephen Smith answered:

Does hysterectomy help with nutcracker syndrome?

No

Hysterectomy
Nutcracker syndrome is compression of the left renal vein between the SMA and the aorta. This increases the pressure in the left gonadal vein which comes off of the left renal vein so in this syndrome there is left testicular Varicose Veins (varicocele). A hysterectomy would not treat this problem.
