This study aimed to compare the cyclic fatigue fracture resistance of different rotary NiTi file systems. Hero shaper rotary file, one shape rotary file and a new rotary file system profile vortex were tested. The cyclic fatigue testing was conducted using a simulated root canal apparatus with an angle of curvature 60⁰and radius of curvature of 5mm.Total sample size of 30 rotary files (10 files in each experimental group) were selected for the study. The files were rotated at 400 rpm using the triauto mini endomotor set at 2.5N/cm torque, until fracture occurred. The time until fracture was recorded in seconds by using a digital stopwatch, and the number of rotations till fracture was then calculated using a mathematical formula. The results were then statistically analysed. Profile vortex (Group 3) was found superior as compared to one shape (Group 2) and hero shaper (Group 1) endodontic rotary NiTi file system in cyclic fatigue testing.
