Abstract

The long and short forms of the PFDI and PFIQ correlate well and have similar overall responsiveness in participants from four different prospective multicenter studies consisting of diverse patient populations with a broad range of pelvic floor disorders. The short forms provide a reliable and valid alternative in situations where reduced response burden is desired.
