Nutcracker Syndrome
In medicine, the nutcracker syndrome (NCS) — is a clinically manifest variant of nutcracker phenomenon, renal vein entrapment syndrome, or mesoaortic compression of the left renal vein. It results most commonly from the compression of the left renal vein between the abdominal aorta (AA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA), although other variants exist. The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal plane and/or transverse plane, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein). There is a wide spectrum of clinical presentations and diagnostic criteria are not well defined, which frequently results in delayed or incorrect diagnosis. This condition is not to be confused with superior mesenteric artery syndrome, which is the compression of the third portion of the duodenum by the SMA and the AA.

Notes of an Anesthesioboist: Nutcracker Syndrome
First, to all fellow-Catholics out there: Happy New Year! It's the first Sunday of Advent, the start of the liturgical year, with its seasons and cycles of darkness and light. I love marking time over the course of the year with an arc of scripture readings at every liturgy designed to take us on a journey from birth, with its hope for future joy and its celebration of gifts already among us, to death, to rebirth.
