PMID:  21052668     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
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.
