|Abstract:||The management of obstructive jaundice resulting from both benign and malignant causes relies heavily on minimally invasive techniques and particularly with the insertion of biliary endoprostheses. Migration of these biliary stents is a well-documented problem and can result in a variety of complications including perforation, intra-abdominal sepsis, fistulae formation, obstruction and appendicitis.|
