  • | Friday | 22nd September, 2023

Jaipur: Kavita Kumari, a 29-year-old woman from Jhunjhunu, was suffering from constant pain in her abdomen for the past few years. After many tests and types of treatment, she came to Sawai Man Singh (SMS) Hospital and told doctors that despite using medicines for two years, her pain had not subsided. Tests conducted at SMS Hospital revealed that she was suffering from the rare nutcracker syndrome, in which some of her arteries had squeezed her left renal (kidney) vein, causing the pain. A senior official of SMS hospital said that the test reports showed that her left renal (kidney) vein was compressed between her abdominal aorta and superior mesenteric artery. The left renal vein carries blood away from the left kidney and back to the heart and its compression in nutcracker syndrome is a major issue. The official said that cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons performed a surgery for it to provide relief to the patient.We also published the following articles recentlyTeen undergoes surgery at SMS for rare disorderDoctors at Sawai Man Singh hospital in Jaipur performed a robotic surgery on an 18-year-old patient with achalasia cardia, a rare swallowing disorder.
