Endoscopic dilatation and stenting are the procedures of choice in the treatment of oesophago-gastric anastomotic stricture following oesophagectomy, leading to immediate relief of dysphagia with a low procedure-related risk. Prosthesis displacement is a described late complication, easy detected and sorted out whenever possible with endoscopic retrieval. A case in which stent migration ended at the terminal part of the small intestine, presenting with the clinical features of mechanical ileum, is described.
