Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided pancreatic pseudocyst drainage using a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) has been reported for satisfactory drainage and endoscopic necrosectomy. Here, we described an interesting case in which successful endoscopic therapy was performed using a new SEMS in infectious walled-off pancreatic necrosis.
