Palliative stenting of malignant colonic obstruction may be complicated by stent migration. Stents that migrate into the rectum cannot be passed with bowel movements and frequently cause obstruction. We present two simple means to retrieve stents from the rectum using fluoroscopic guidance. These techniques were used successfully without complication in four stent migrations.
