Migrated ERCP Stent Presenting with Sigmoid Perforation and Surgical Acute Abdomen: A Case Report

Abstract

1. Abstract
1.1. Background: Obstructive jaundice [OJ], often resulting from choledocholithiasis, impairs bile drainage and can lead to multi-system complications. Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio- pancreatography [ERCP] is a primary treatment modality for OJ, involving stenting for bile duct strictures or obstructions. While generally safe, ERCP can entail complications, including the in- frequent but serious occurrence of stent migration.
