Within the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine, the Kujala Anterior Knee Pain Scale AKPS [ 1 ], has been widely used to identify and study the prevalence of patellofemoral knee pain. Conceived and designed the experiments: Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy.
Three different types anterir reliability internal consistency, equivalence across forms, standard error of measurement and one type of validity criterion-related were estimated for the AKPS in the current sample. 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: 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 authors have declared that no competing interests exist. 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. Standard error of measurement SEM Variability associated with the errors of test scores was computed as follows: The AKPS was initially designed for use in clinical settings with symptomatic knee pain patients.
Total scores range from 0 to Barber Foss3 Timothy E. Archives of physical medicine and rehabilitation. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.
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. Scoring of patellofemoral disorders. The purpose of the current study was to describe and report on the reliability and validity of the AKPS for use with high school female athletes participating in interscholastic athletics. Statistical Analyses Three different sets of reliability estimates were computed for the AKPS for the entire sample of research participants: 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.
Physical Therapy in Antdrior. Participants 18 years of age and older signed an adult written consent form. Materials and Methods Sample The records of adolescent girls XLS Click here for anteiror data file. The study was designed to assess patellofemoral pain in a diverse, non-clinical sample of adolescent female athletes who participated in three interscholastic sports programs, namely basketball, soccer, and volleyball, within a single school district in rural Kentucky 3.
Three different sets of reliability estimates were computed for the AKPS for the entire sample of research participants: Published online Jul Even the two studies that used translations into other languages were done using adult groups and with specific disease states [ 56 ]. Only two studies have focused on the measurement properties of patellofemoral pain instruments, in general [ 23 ], and only one study has focused on the technical properties of the AKPS, specifically [ 4 xnterior.
Introduction Within the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine, the Kujala Anterior Knee Pain Scale AKPS [ 1 ], has been widely used to identify and study the prevalence of aanterior knee pain. Anferior well developed, however, is the psychometric foundation on which the instrument is based. The dichotomously scored items manifested identical classification rates to those of the ordinal response format.
It will be important for additional research to be conducted with this instrument, to administer the scale in its various forms to the athletes prior to additional use, and to athletes representing broader segments of the U. Despite widespread acceptance and clinical use of the Kujala Anterior Knee Pain Scale AKPS in orthopedics and sports medicine, few studies have reported on its reliability and no such studies have concentrated on child or adolescent samples exclusively, segments of the population for which this instrument is often used.
Throughout all analyses described here, the original item long form anteriog the AKPS was evaluated as well as the 6-item short form identified by Kujzla et al.

Consequently, the purpose of this study was to describe and report on the reliability and validity of the AKPS with adolescent female athletes participating in interscholastic anteroir. Variability associated with the errors of test scores was computed as follows: No studies to date appear to have taken a comprehensive view of reliability assessment and none has been conducted using pediatric or adolescent samples.
Whereas the 6-item form had identical classification rates to the item form, one acale be able to screen at similar accuracy and reliability levels with the shorter form, thereby saving valuable time for clinical care and intervention.
However, despite its widespread acceptance clinically, relatively few studies have reported on its technical properties with pediatric patients. Chinese translation and validation of scal Kujala scale for patients with patellofemoral pain. The records of adolescent girls The records of female athletes All analyses were descriptive in nature, used a pre-specified statistical analysis plan approved by the entire team, and computed using SAS v9.
Instrument 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. The purpose of this study was to describe and report on the reliability and validity of the AKPS using both the original item form and a more concise 6-item form among a sample of high-school female athletes. 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.

Knee surgery, sports traumatology, arthroscopy: Conclusion Current AKPS data using the scle 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.
