The covered self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) has been developed to overcome the problem of tissue in-growth, However, stent migration is a well-known com--plication of covered SEMS placement. Use of a double pigtail stent to lock the movement of the SEMS and prevent migration has been advised by many ex-perts. Unfortunately, in our case this technique led to an in-cidental upward migration of the SEMS. We used APC to create a side hole in the SEMS for plastic stent insertion as stent-in-stent. This led to a successful pre-ven-tion of stent migration.
