The analyses performed here were performed with modifications to the scoring system after the instrument had been administered. Participants 18 years of age and older signed an adult written consent form. It is also recommended that new studies be conducted in which the different formats are presented to the athletes and scored using the modified forms presented here, to know with increased certainty how the different scales perform in the reduced or simplified states.
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.

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: In the case of a prospective epidemiologic study, when spread over thousands of athletes, this could mean a tremendous savings to the athletes, the clinicians, and medical and educational systems more broadly.
Conceived and designed the experiments: See Myer et al. 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: The records of female athletes 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 patellofemoral knee pain.
The study was designed to assess patellofemoral pain in a diverse, non-clinical sample of adolescent female athletes antfrior participated in three interscholastic sports programs, namely basketball, soccer, and volleyball, within a single school district in rural Kentucky 3.
Barber Foss3 Timothy E. The records of adolescent girls The Kujala AKPS, is a well-recognized and highly respected instrument used within the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine. Physical Therapy in Iujala. 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. However, the extent to which these findings generalize to athletes of other sports, in other grade levels, or in other U.
Received Mar 14; Accepted Jun 1. Knee surgery, sports traumatology, arthroscopy: Data Availability All relevant data are within the paper and its Supporting Information files.
Three different sets of reliability estimates were computed for the AKPS for the entire sample of research participants: Even the two studies that used translations into other languages were done using adult groups and with specific disease states [ 56 ]. Hewett4 and Gregory D. Archives of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Outcome measures in patellofemoral pain syndrome: 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. Shorter instruments with identical psychometric properties can offer clinicians and researchers tremendous advantages, which may include significantly anteror study recruitment and decreased study dropout.

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. Throughout all analyses described here, the original item long form of the AKPS was evaluated as well as the 6-item short form identified by Myer et al. Four different approaches to scoring and scale reduction of the AKPS were evaluated, including the original, ordinal item form, a modified, ordinal 6-item form, a modified, dichotomous item form, and a modified, dichotomous 6-item form.
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.
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.
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. Scoring of patellofemoral disorders.
The current project was part of a prospective, epidemiologic investigation that included a population of healthy, asymptomatic, and minimally symptomatic study participants. More research is needed to confirm these findings across ages, sexes and various activity levels. Kujjala dichotomously scored items manifested identical classification rates to those of the ordinal response format.

However, despite its widespread acceptance clinically, relatively few studies have reported on its technical properties with pediatric patients. Statistical Analyses Three different sets of reliability estimates were computed for the AKPS ppain the entire sample of research participants: This is an open access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Licensewhich permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author and source are credited.
Whereas Bennel et kyjala. Second, Spearman-rho correlation coefficients were used to estimate the equivalence of scales between the 6-item brief forms with their longer, item forms. Whereas the 6-item form had identical classification rates to the item form, one may be able to screen at similar accuracy and reliability levels with the shorter form, thereby saving valuable time for clinical care and intervention. Three different types of 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.
Analysis of patient-reported anterior knee pain scale: Discussion The Kujala AKPS, is a well-recognized and highly respected instrument used within the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine.
