|Several questionnaires are available to assess Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) following conservative and surgical interventions for various spinal conditions.|
Among these, the Italian Spine Youth Quality of Life (ISYQOL) questionnaire was developed to evaluate health-related quality of life in adolescents with Idiopathic Scoliosis and showed high validity in measuring HRQOL.
After Chinese, Korean and Polish versions of the ISYQOL, the study, Cross-cultural adaptation and validation of the Italian Spine Youth Quality of Life (ISYQOL) questionnaire’s Arabic version, aimed to undertake the process of adaptation of the questionnaire into the Arabic language (ISYQOL-Ar) and evaluate its validity and reliability, and to correlate it with the validated revised Scoliosis Research Society (SRS-22r)’s Arabic questionnaire in a cross-sectional multicenter study.
The ISYQOL was translated, back-translated, and reviewed by an expert committee. Reliability assessment for the questionnaire domains was performed using Cronbach’s alpha.
A total of 115 patients were enrolled in the study and completed the ISYQOL-Ar and Arabic SRS-22r questionnaires.
The ISYQOL-Ar questionnaire is a reliable and valid outcome measure for assessing young patients with spinal deformity among the Arabic-speaking population.
