Hello and hope you are doing well.

Normally, a single ureter drains a single kidney but sometimes there may be two ureters draining one kidney. One ureter drains the upper part of the kidney and the second ureter drains the lower part. As long as they both enter the bladder normally, this  double collecting system is not a problem. If they are placed abnormally, then the person may be prone for urinary tract infections. Different treatment options have been proposed for the nutcracker kidney, based on the position of the renal vein. Discuss the possibilities with your consulting doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
