Echo™ Hip System
Options and instruments designed for patients and surgeons

The Echo™ Hip System, based on Biomet’s proven Bi-Metric® and Integral® femoral component designs,1-2 offers new design features, three stem options and customizable instrumentation to adequately address the needs of diverse fracture patients.

Echo™ Hip System Design Features
  • Reduced neck geometry enhances potential range of motion
  • Modified insertion hole allows for rotational control
  • Modified inserter aides in controlling version upon impaction
  • Polished proximal neck region
Three Stem Options
The Echo™ FX Stem is similar to the traditional Biomet® hip fracture stem. It is a dual purpose stem that can be cemented or press-fit. Key design features include:
  • Forged cobalt chromium alloy
  • Roughened Interlok® finish
  • Six sizes: 7–17mm (2mm increments)
  • Utilizes Exact™/Alliance® RPP broaches with new Echo™ trunnions
The Echo™ PF stem is designed for surgeons who prefer to perform hemi or total hip arthroplasty without bone cement. Key design features include:
  • Collarless and forged titanium alloy
  • Interlok® surface finish to promote a secure bone on-growth implant fixation
  • Enhanced fixation fins proximally in anterior and posterior regions
  • Tremendous size range to provide for canal-filling fit: 7–19mm (1 mm increments)
The Echo™ Bi-Metric® stem is a press-fit primary total hip. This stem utilizes many of the features of the proven Integral® and Bi-Metric® hip stems while integrating new design features to further enhance clinical performance. Key design features include:
  • Full and reduced proximal profile to accommodate a wider range of femoral canals
  • Standard and lateralized offset options to restore biomechanics
  • Reduced neck geometry to allow for increased ROM and decreased risk of neck impingement
  • Polished neck designed to reduce debris should impingement occur
  • Polished bullet-shape distal tip to reduce distal stresses

*additional broach instrumentation required for full profile option with fracture instrumentation
