Endovascular carotid artery stenting has evolved over recent years to become a favorable alternative treatment option for cervical carotid artery stenosis.

We hereafter present a case in which the metallic marker ring on the delivery sheath dislodged and emergent surgery had to be performed to retrieve the locked stent.
