Figure 1
Figure 1 Stenosis at the segment of descending colon, less than 5 mm in diameter.
Figure 2
Figure 2 The first stent was appropriately positioned and deployed by withdrawing the enveloping membrane under fluoroscopic control to ensure that the lesion was adequately covered, thus relieving the obstruction.
Figure 3
Figure 3 Clinical symptoms of obstruction recurred the next day. Anteroposterior radiographs showed the stent migrated above the lesion and a second stent was needed. Second stent was deployed with the same stent placement techniques through the lumen of the first stent.
Figure 4
Figure 4 Radiograph obtained after a water-soluble enema on the day after the second stent was deployed shows that the stents expanded to provide an adequate lumen.
