Should I retrieve it? (by Ilya Mer)

Shouldn’t get it anyway.
Patient was sent to retreatment after failed  attempt of referral.  I was told that there was strong obstruction of MB happened during procedure. Probably instrument separation occurred.
distal open margin and broken file probably in perf
decay removal and pre-endo-buildup

the entrance to canal was located as usual in the internal-distal corner of the ledge
Post op the broken file is still on its place. Shouldn't be retreived, IMO.
