Of the initial 122 adolescents surveyed, 87 adolescents returned the second questionnaire, which assessed test–retest reliability between SRS-22r and the pediatric quality of life inventory questionnaire (PedsQL 4.0). The results were found to be reliable and valid, with acceptable internal consistency, intraclass correlation, and moderate correlation with a similar questionnaire. The SRS-22r can be used to assess health-related quality of life internationally among adolescents with scoliosis. Copyright © 2016 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
