Abstract

Nutcracker syndrome, whose prevalence and natural history are still poorly known, is a clinical syndrome caused by left renal vein compression between the superior mesenteric artery and the aorta. Long-term results and treatment outcomes are not well known. Our group aimed to characterize 7 patients diagnosed with nutcracker syndrome in childhood and to describe their clinical manifestations, diagnostic approaches, and mostly their clinical evolution, rate of complications, and treatment outcomes.
