Key Clinical Message

This case highlights the importance of considering stent migration as a possible cause of intestinal perforation and the need for prompt surgical intervention.


Endo-biliary stent displacement is rare but can cause intestinal perforation. An 85-year-old woman with a history of ERCPs and biliary stents experienced stomach pain and vomiting. She was diagnosed with small bowel perforation from migrated stents and underwent emergency laparotomy, bowel resection, and tension-free stapled anastomosis.
