Migration of the lumen apposing stent can be a routine problem during stent placement or necrosectomy and can be a significant source of apprehension for the performing endoscopist. We present our case of walled off necrosis with disconnected pancreatic duct syndrome where the stent migrated during the necrosectomy and was salvaged by replacement. This can be a useful piece of information for endoscopist working in limited resource setting where inserting a new stent could be cost inefficient.
