Retrieval of a separated instrument using Masserann technique.

Bottom Line: The fracture of endodontic instruments is a procedural problem creating a major obstacle to normal routine therapy.When an attempt to bypass such a fragment becomes difficult, it should be retrieved by mechanical devices.These clinical cases demonstrate the usage of Masserann technique in removal of separated instruments in anterior and also the posterior teeth.

ABSTRACT
The fracture of endodontic instruments is a procedural problem creating a major obstacle to normal routine therapy. The separated instrument, particularly a broken file, leads to metallic obstruction in the root canal and impedes efficient cleaning and shaping. When an attempt to bypass such a fragment becomes difficult, it should be retrieved by mechanical devices. Masserann kit is one such device for orthograde removal of intracanal metallic obstructions. These clinical cases demonstrate the usage of Masserann technique in removal of separated instruments in anterior and also the posterior teeth.

Mentions: Access opening was done and working length determined. During cleaning and shaping, a #35 NiTi hand file was separated at the junction of middle and apical third of the root canal [Figure 6a]. Masserann kit was used to remove the fractured segment [Figure 6b].
