The name derives from the fact that, in
the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination
) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein). I was originally Diagnosed with Pelvic Con
after complaining for many years of
ic pelvic pain, left sided flank pain, lower back, and lower limbs.
My husband and I were also trying to con
ceive for 6 years and all the doctors could tell me was that I had a great looking uterus.
