Proximal Migration of Pancreatic Stent A Case Report and Recommendations

Xiaoping Pan

Abstract


Background: Pancreatic stents are commonly used in the treatment of pancreatic diseases but can cause many complications, including proximal migration.

Case Report: We report a case of a proximally migrated pancreatic stent and how by using duodenal biopsy forceps we successfully removed the shifted stent.

Conclusions: Pancreatic stenting requires high technical skills and the choice of the right stent is a very crucial in the success of the procedure. Once the stent is shifted, biopsy forceps can be used to remove the pancreatic duct stent.
