  • The AXIOS stent (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA) is a novel lumen-apposing self-expandable metallic stent designed for enteric drainage of nonadherent lumens. Efficacy and safety of using the AXIOS stent for pancreatic fluid drainage have been consistently shown in several studies. Although it is less common with this novel stent, stent migration still may happen. We present a case of AXIOS stent migration into the esophagus.
