Calcium entry through a plasma membrane defect leads to the local recruitment of endosomal complex required for transport (ESCRT) proteins. These proteins are hypothesized to drive an outward bending of the affected plasma membrane, forming a small bud that is then shed from the cell, along with the troublesome defect.
