Validation en version française des questionnaires de qualité de vie spécifiques aux patients atteints de paralysie faciale périphérique

Abstract : Objectives: To translate and validate French versions of two health-related quality of life questionnaires for patients with peripheral facial palsy: Facial Disability Index (FDI) and Facial Clinimetric Evaluation (FaCE) scale. Design: Prospective cohort study. Setting: University tertiary referral center. Participants: Pilot test was performed over 5 patients with facial palsy and 5 normal subjects, and 67 adult patients with stable facial palsy were enrolled in validation study. Main outcome measures: Translation of the original questionnaires has followed international guidelines using a forward-backward translation method. A pilot test and validation study based on the translated questionnaires was performed. Internal consistency, test–retest reliability, validity and responsiveness were assessed. Validity was assessed by comparing FDI and FaCE scale scores to SF-36 and Sunnybrook/House-Brackmann grading systems. Subjects answered FDI and FaCE scale twice with a one-week interval. Results: 67 patients were enrolled among which 63 completed scales one week later (retest). Cronbach’s α representing internal consistency were between 0.66 and 0.92. Test–retest reliability was shown by intra-class correlation coefficients of 0.75–0.94. Both questionnaires showed good sensitivity to discriminate between patients with varying degrees of facial dysfunction. Moderate to strong correlation was found between the social domains in the studied scales and the equivalent domains in SF-36. Conclusions: French versions of FDI and FaCE scale are psychometrically valid. Both questionnaires can be used for clinical studies to assess the quality of life of patients with peripheral facial palsy patients
