INTRODUCTION: Retrieval and repositioning of a stent deployed beyond its intended target region may be a difficult technical challenge. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A balloon-mounted snare technique, a variant of the coaxial loop snare technique, is described. RESULTS: The technique is described for the repositioning of a covered transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt stent and a covered biliary stent. CONCLUSION: The balloon-mounted snare technique is a useful technique for retrieval of migrated stents.
