Purpose. To translate and adapt the English VISA-P questionnaire to Italian and to perform reliability and validity evaluations of the Italian VISA-P version in patients with patellar tendinopathy. Methods. The VISA-P English version was translated into Italian by a bilingual orthopaedic surgeon. The back translation of the Italian version into English was performed by another bilingual orthopaedic surgeon. The original version was compared with the back translation. The VISA-P-I questionnaire was then administered to 25 male athletes (average age 27.9, range 18-32 years) with a diagnosis of patellar tendinopathy. For test-retest evaluation, the 25 patients were asked to complete the questionnaire at first examination, and 30 minutes following the end of this examination. Results. The kappa statistics for 25 patients was 0.78. There were no significant differences between the scores immediately after the consultation and 30 minutes later. Conclusions. Italian and the English versions of the VISA-P questionnaire evaluate the same aspects of clinical severity in patients with patellar tendinopathy.

Abstract

Purpose. To translate and adapt the English VISA-P questionnaire to Italian and to perform reliability and validity evaluations of the Italian VISA-P version in patients with patellar tendinopathy. Methods. The VISA-P English version was translated into Italian by a bilingual orthopaedic surgeon. The back translation of the Italian version into English was performed by another bilingual orthopaedic surgeon. The original version was compared with the back translation. The VISA-P-I questionnaire was then administered to 25 male athletes (average age 27.9, range 18-32 years) with a diagnosis of patellar tendinopathy. For test-retest evaluation, the 25 patients were asked to complete the questionnaire at first examination, and 30 minutes following the end of this examination. Results. The kappa statistics for 25 patients was 0.78. There were no significant differences between the scores immediately after the consultation and 30 minutes later. Conclusions. Italian and the English versions of the VISA-P questionnaire evaluate the same aspects of clinical severity in patients with patellar tendinopathy.
