Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided placement of a lumen-apposing metal stent (LAMS) for the management of pancreatic walled-off necrosis (WON) in a 59-year-old man. At 10 days following the initial procedure, repeat upper endoscopy showed a partially occluded LAMS with semi-solid necrotic content, which was then partially removed with a raptor forceps and a large amount of lavage with sterile water. The decision was made to leave the LAMS and the plastic stent for another 2 weeks.
