American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 10/08/2013Harvie HS et al.
This study aims to evaluate the construct validity of three health–status classification system instruments, Health Utilities Index Mark 3 (HUI–3), EuroQol (EQ–5D), and Short Form 6D (SF–6D) and a visual–analogue scale (VAS) for measuring utility scores in women with urge, stress and mixed urinary incontinence. The HUI–3, EQ–5D and SF–6D, but not the VAS, provide valid measurements for utility scores in women with stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence.
