We report a case of retrieval of partially degloved and distorted coronary stent using a novel improvised technique of higher sized sheath. The stent could not be removed into the regular guiding catheter of 6F. We removed the partially degloved coronary stent by withdrawing it into the descending aorta and then exchanging femoral sheath with higher sized (11F) femoral sheath followed by removing the stent into 11F sheath.
