Functional description

A cemented Cobalt Chrome bowed femoral stem with trapezoidal distal cross section. The femoral neck is

resected and the canal is reamed incrementally. The femur is broached to size and the broach is seated

flush with the osteotomy level. Following reaming of the calcar and trialling, the femoral canal is prepared

and a Buck cement restrictor is inserted into the canal. Cement is injected into the canal from a

pressurized cement gun, and a stem inserter and mallet are used to seat the implant.

Intended purpose

A sterile femoral component of a total hip system. The Echelon cemented femoral implants are designed

for revision use in cases where the bone stock is not optimal for cementless fixation. The bowed design

accommodates the natural bow of the femur.

Hip components are indicated for individuals undergoing primary and revision surgery where other

treatments or devices have failed in rehabilitating hips damaged as a result of trauma or noninflammatory

degenerative joint disease (NIDJD) or any of its composite diagnoses of osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis,

traumatic arthritis, slipped capital epiphysis, fused hip, fracture of the pelvis, and diastrophic variant.

Hip components are also indicated for inflammatory degenerative joint disease including rheumatoid

arthritis, arthritis secondary to a variety of diseases and anomalies, and congenital dysplasia; treatments of

nonunion, femoral neck fracture, and trochanteric fractures of the proximal femur with head involvement

that are unmanageable using other techniques; endoprosthesis, femoral osteotomy, or Girdlestone

resection; fracture/dislocation of the hip; and correction of deformity.
