Dagami Analysis of outcome measures for persons with patellofemoral pain: Physical Therapy in Sport. The study was a secondary analysis of prospective epidemiologic data using established scale validation methods. Current AKPS data using the reduced 6-item form appears to offer highly similar reliability indices to the original but longer item form when either the ordinal or the knee response option formats are considered. More research is needed to confirm these findings across ages, sexes and various activity levels. Results Internal Consistency Measures of internal consistency were computed for both the item long form as well as the 6-item short form for both ordinal and dichotomously recoded response option formats: The current study is not without limitations.

Discussion The Kujala AKPS, is a well-recognized and highly respected instrument used within the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine. Materials and Methods Sample The records of adolescent girls This lack of evidence regarding the AKPS in the professional literature, and its potential to provide clinicians with specific reliability information on the symptomatic evaluation of anterior knee pain in large samples of adolescents leaves an important gap in the pediatric sports medicine literature.

Conclusion Current AKPS data using the reduced 6-item form appears to offer highly similar reliability indices to the original but longer item form when either the ordinal or the dichotomized response option formats are considered. Analysis of patient-reported anterior knee pain amterior Archives of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Second, Spearman-rho correlation coefficients were used to estimate the equivalence of scales between the 6-item brief forms with their longer, item forms.

The Kujala AKPS [ 1 ] is a item screening instrument designed to assess patellofemoral pain in adolescents and young adults, with a variable ordinal response format. Within the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine, the Kujala Anterior Knee Pain Scale AKPS [ 1 ], has been widely used knse identify and study the prevalence of patellofemoral knee pain. However, the extent to which these findings generalize to athletes of other sports, in other grade levels, or pqin other U.

However, despite its widespread acceptance kujxla, relatively few studies have reported on its technical properties with pediatric patients.

Published online Jul Results Internal Consistency Measures of internal consistency were computed for both the item long form as well as the 6-item kuala form for both ordinal and dichotomously recoded response option formats: Third, standard error of measurement SEM values were calculated for each set of scores, with SEM defined as the likelihood of a score to vary about its true mean, and calculated as follows: Among athletes who changed state over the course of the season healthy to injured or injured to healthythe AKPS appeared to over-estimate the number of healthy athletes with knee pain false positive more often than it injured athletes as healthy false-negative.

Support Center Support Center. The Kujala AKPS is a valid and reliable measure of anterior knee pain and appropriate for use as an epidemiologic screening tool with adolescent female athletes. Current AKPS data using the reduced 6-item form appears to offer highly similar reliability indices to the original but longer item form when either the ordinal or the dichotomized response option formats are considered.

Barber Foss3 Timothy E. XLS Click here for additional data file. The dichotomously scored items manifested identical classification rates to those of the ordinal response format.

Free online Kujala Anterior Knee Pain Scale score calculator Reliability was estimated using internal consistency, equivalence across forms, and standard error of measurement; validity was evaluated using percent correct classification rates at both pre- and post-season evaluations. However, the instrument did have a tendency to overestimate the number of athletes who were injured more so than it did the number of athletes where were healthy, which is indeed preferable in a clinical, epidemiologic study as this one.
