Health-related quality of life (HRQL) after proctocolectomy is a critical parameter for management decisions in patients with chronic pancolitis.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the HRQL of patients with ileoanal pull-through and to validate new, easy-to-administer HRQL measures.
The Sickness Impact Profile (SIP), Short Form 36 (SF-36), Rating Form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Patient Concerns (RFIPC), and the time trade-off (TTO) were used to measure HRQL of pull-through patients.
The SF-36 and the RFIPC were validated.
HRQL of patients with ileoanal pull-through was better than that of a national sample of patients with IBD (SIP and RFIPC) and similar to that of a normal population (SF-36).
Physical and psychosocial subscales of the SF-36 correlated with the SIP, affirming the construct validity of the SF-36.
The RFIPC results correlated with the SIP and SF-36 results, suggesting that it is also a valid health status measure for these patients.
TTO results correlated with the physical subscales of the SIP and SF-36, reflecting the impact of physical health on this group.
HRQL of patients with ileoanal pull-through is excellent.
The SF-36 and RFIPC are valid health status measures that can be used by clinicians and researchers in these patients.
