Abstract

Purpose The present study aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Pectus Carinatum Body Image Quality of Life Questionnaire (PeCBI-QOL), which was originally created in American English in patients with pectus carinatum (PC). Methods The study included 52 volunteer patients with PC, aged 10-18 years. Cronbach alpha was used to assess internal consistency. Intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) was used to estimate the test-retest reliability. Construct validity was analyzed with the Pectus Excavatum Evaluation Questionnaire (PEEQ). Results The reliability of the Turkish version of the PeCBI-QOL was found to have acceptable to excellent internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha coefficient = 0.701-950). Test-retest reliability calculated for investigating the reliability of the questionnaire over time was found to be excellent (ICC = 0.817-0.983). Construct validity of the PeCBI-QOL (child and parent form) was found to be correlated with all subscales in the PEEQ questionnaire (r = - 0.425 to 897, p < 0.001) except the treatment motivation subscale (r = 0.033-0.111, p = 0.439-0.816). Conclusion We determined that the Turkish version of the PeCBI-QOL questionnaire was valid and reliable for the assessment of body image and quality of life in Turkish patients with PC. PeCBI-QOL questionnaire, a self-assessment one, will assist Turkish clinicians who wish to assess body image and quality of life of patients with PC.
