A chronic esophago-pleural fistula resistant to covered esophageal stent therapy can be a difficult clinical problem to solve. We present a patient with a dilated esophagus resulting in stent migration despite proximal stent fixation techniques, with resultant repeated pleural sepsis. We utilised a through the fistula drainage stent technique that resulted in the fistula healing.
