Intended use

Oravizio is a software tool that provides data-driven information about the patient-level risks and outcomes, aiming to help the surgeon, in collaboration with the patient, to make better informed decisions about the treatment when hip or knee joint replacement surgery is considered. It aims to improve the process of shared-decision making in clinical practice that is recognized to be a vital part of modern medicine.


To use Oravizio, the patient must be fit enough for major joint replacement surgery. In practice, this means that if there are absolute contraindications for such surgery, the tool should NOT be used for risk assessment.

Absolute contraindications for using Oravizio:

  • Active sepsis
  • Active bacterial infection of the knee or hip joint
  • Any acute or chronic illness that significantly increases the risk of perioperative death, e.g.
    • Instable coronary arterial disease
    • Recent (< 6 months) coronary artery stenting and clopidogrel medication
    • Acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
    • Diabetes mellitus (DM) with poor glycemic control (B-HbA1C > 9% (75 mmol/l)
    • Acute kidney disease
    • Severe cirrhosis of the liver
    • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Current or recent history of intravenous drug use
  • Alcoholism with recent history of continuous drinking
  • Any other disease or condition that increases the patient’s risk of complication to unacceptable high level, and therefore prevents surgery.

The consideration about the effect of contraindications and the final decision about patient treatment must always be done by a healthcare professional.

Description of the Service

Oravizio shall be used only by or under direct supervision of board-certified orthopaedic surgeons at outpatient clinics. It is used in addition to routine clinical examination of patients, whose eligibility for knee or hip joint replacement surgery is being assessed.

Every patient is examined to evaluate, whether the patient would benefit from such surgery and whether the patient is fit enough to undergo hip or knee replacement surgery. For every patient, Oravizio presents both the patient-specific risks and expected outcomes in joint replacement surgery in an understandable way. The risk calculation algorithm combines patient-specific data, that is manually submitted to Oravizio by the healthcare professionals, with comprehensive patient history data.

Oravizio also helps orthopaedic surgeons to communicate the risk and expected outcomes of joint replacement surgery to the patient.

Oravizio is to be used before surgery. In practice, two conditions must be fulfilled before it is used: 1) The surgeon has evaluated that the patient would benefit from joint replacement surgery in terms of pain relief, improved functional outcome and improved quality of life, and 2) the surgeon has also concluded that there are no absolute contraindications for such surgery. The tool can then be used as an additional utility to further assess the actual risk levels of that specific patient and the short- and long-term outcome of joint replacement, and to aid the surgeon in shared decision making.

Clinical benefit

The information that Oravizio provides to the surgeon is based on a large amount of patient history data. This amount is so vast that it is impossible for a single human being to process such data without technology. Oravizio provides this patient-specific information that enables better informed shared-decision making.


Oravizio is used in aiding shared-decision making only by board-certified orthopaedic surgeons or orthopaedic trainees under direct supervision of senior orthopaedic surgeons. All interpretations based on the tool outcome must always be made by board-certified orthopaedic surgeons.

Use environment

Oravizio is meant to be used at orthopaedic outpatient clinics that are used for clinical examination of patients, or in other similar environments with a comparable setting, privacy and security.
