The statistical analysis was based on guidance in Agresti et al 2 and Fleiss.

We determined the correlation between absolute scores. Prospective open label study in 2 tertiary referral centers. The internal consistency was high 0.

Recently, Larsen et al. The three questions on the ICIQ-SF consistently assess frequency, severity and impact on quality of life caused by urinary incontinence. Rev Bras Reumatol ; We assessed the responsiveness of the ICIQ-SF after surgical procedures for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.

A study at the Urogynecology Clinic was conducted from November until August Most of the patients were married 84 or Questionbaire datasets were from patients who responded to follow-up postal questionnaire packs which also included symptom severity, QoL and sexual function questionnaires. After their suggestions had been taken into account, the Portuguese version of the ICIQ-SF V1 quextionnaire pretested on a total of 20 patients with urinary incontinence.

[ICIQ-SF questionnaire in women with urinary incontinence].

Health Publication Ltd; Any transurethral urine leakage even drops was recorded as an objective failure of the surgical procedure and the patients underwent urodynamic testing. Patients also underwent pre-operative urodynamic tests, Stamey incontinence grading and pad usage assessments.

The decision to translate and culturally adapt the ICIQ-SF was made because it is an instrument that specifically assesses the impact of urinary incontinence symptoms on patients’ lives.

J Clin Epidemiol ; Reliability The reliability was analyzed by means of the internal consistency and test-retest.

According to De Boer et al. It is to be used as a visual analog scale VAS where the patients can choose the degree of interference from UI in their lives by ticking or circling a number on a scale ranging from zero to ten when zero is considered “not interfere at all” and 10 represents “interfere a lot”.


Furthermore, it is not gender-specific like the KHQ and is intended to be universal applicable for use in individuals of all ages, genders, backgrounds, patient groups, diagnoses and cultures.

The sentence in parentheses did not help in explaining the overall meaning of the question for the majority of the patients. The reliability was analyzed by means of the internal consistency and test-retest. Similar results were iviq from the study of external responsiveness when the post-treatment final score was compared with an external variable such as pad usage and stress test Table PGI-I provides a more global overview of treatment success that is more likely to fully encompass the range of benefits and harms of surgery compared to a disease-specific questionnaire such as ICIQ.

Comparing the mean level of schooling of our population sample with the literacy level for the whole Brazilian population, it can be seen that our sample had almost the same overall rate of literacy. This is due to the fact that there is growing interest in subjective clinical evaluation methods among health researchers.

The test-retest value was considered moderate to strong, as measured by the weighted Kappa index range: This fact is important in our environment where a great deal of patients can have difficulties in interpreting and completing the questionnaire. It has shown excellent correlation with the symptom score and QoL index in urology research [ 17 ]. No changes from the original format of the ICIQ-SF were observed at the end of the process of translation and cultural adaptation.


ICIQ | Urinary Incontinence Form

All the participants questionnaite the informed consent statement before being included in this study. Concurrent validity, internal consistency and responsiveness of the Portuguese version of the King’s Health Questionnaire KHQ in women after stress urinary incontinence surgery.

The usefulness of instruments designed to measure changes within individuals over time is dependent not only on their reliability and validity, but also on their ability to detect minimal clinically important differences. It can be applied to patients of both genders, either young or elderly. In our environment, such a procedure is normal, especially in studies that utilize scales. Because of their length, such questionnaires become inefficient and consequently difficult questionnairee apply in clinical practice, or even in scientific research.


For the internal consistency, the standardized Cronbach alpha coefficient was applied. Patient-selected goals in overactive bladder: It should be added that, after comparing different methods of administering questionnaires, Weinberger et al.

The prevalence of urinary incontinence and its influence on the quality of life in women form an urban Swedish population. How to cite this article.

Internal consistency was assessed using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient. After harmonization of the back-translation V2 with the original in English, the translation into Portuguese V1 was considered to be icjq and semantically equivalent to the original version in English, and ready for submission to a committee of five bilingual judges who all worked in the field of healthcare.

Significant correlations at the 0. This demonstrated that the results are fully validated for the majority of women undergoing treatment with a MUS.

These were used to generate sensitivity and specificity cut-off values. Eligibility criteria included patients aged over 18 years old who were undergoing surgery for stress urinary incontinence with at least one month of follow up. However, there is a paucity of evidence as to what represents a successful postintervention ICIQ-SF score, and this is further complicated when the baseline score is not available [ 5 ].

In addition, the KHQ has received limited use outside of clinical settings. To assess objective outcomes such as stress test after surgical procedure, all the patients were in standing position with the physiological bladder filled to questionaire vesical capacity strong desire or sensation to void without urge.
