Core Tip In this study, we conducted a retrospective analysis to evaluate the efficacy of 7-French (Fr) and 10-Fr double-pigtail plastic stent (DPS) within the fully covered self-expandable metal stent (FCSEMS) as an anti-migration technique. We compared the rate of stent migration between patients who received FCSEMS alone and those who received both an FCSEMS and anchoring DPS in a large patient population with both benign and malignant strictures as well as non-stricture etiologies. Our findings suggest that anchoring of FCSEMS with a 7-Fr or 10-Fr DPS does not decrease the risk of stent migration. Only benign biliary stricture and previous sphincterotomy were to have a significant association with stent migrations (P = 0.01). We did not find evidence to support the routine placement of anchoring DPS.
