The occurrence of a neuritis of the ischiatic nerve and the genito-femoral nerve due to the implant of three stents in the iliac artery, is an extremely rare complication, expecially if associated with retroperitoneal fibrosis which caused a nevritis symptomatology. A case of stent migration in the subadventitial space which caused 4 years from angioplasty and stents implant, a nevritis symptomatology. Retroperi-toneal fibrosis has been considered as a consequence of the stents presence and of their chronic irritational activity, expecially for what concerns the stent migrated in the subadventitial space; the procedure personally performed in this case is reported.
