Introduction: The purpose of this study was to investigate the amount of apically extruded debris by Reciproc Blue (REC Blue; VDW, Munich, Germany), HyFlex EDM (HEDM; Coltene/Whaledent, Altstatten, Switzerland), and XP-endo Shaper (XPS; FKG Dentaire SA, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland) files during root canal preparation at body temperature. Methods: Sixty extracted single-rooted mandibular premolar human teeth were randomly assigned to 3 groups (n = 20). The canals were instrumented using 1 of the following instruments: REC Blue, HEDM, or XPS. Apically extruded debris during instrumentation was collected into pre-weighed Eppendorf tubes. All the procedures were performed at 35 degrees C. The amount of extruded debris was calculated by subtracting the weight value of the tooth-free apparatus from the postpreparation weight value. The data were analyzed using the KruskalWallis test at a 5% significance level. Results: All the instruments tested caused extrusion of some debris from the apical foramen. XPS extruded significantly less debris from the apex than REC Blue (P <.05). The difference among the HEDM group and the other groups was not significant (P> .05). Conclusions: Within the limitations of this in vitro study, the amount of apically extruded debris registered for the different files tested was REC Blue> HEDM> XPS, with a statistical difference only between XPS and REC Blue.
