Resumen

LOPEZ N, Sebastián et al. Cross-cultural adaptation of a bowel function questionnaire (LARS Score) for application in patients operated on for medium and low rectal cancer. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.1, pp.44-48. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2016.07.003.

Introduction: The treatment of rectal cancer has progressed in the past decade. Nowadays, it's feasible to provide sphincter sparing surgery with low colorectal anastomosis or coloanal anastomosis. This has determined that many patients develop intestinal dysfunctions that can become severe, grouping a number of disorders known as low anterior resection syndrome. Objective: To perform a cultural adaptation of the version 1.0 questionnaire about bowel function or Low Resection Syndrome Score (LARS Score) in neutral Spanish, making a translation, comparing translations, back translation and pilot test. Results: The results of the pilot test showed that the population surveyed understood the instrument, so that no further modifications were made. Conclusion: We now have an adapted version of the LARS questionnaire for use in Chile, which can undergo validation processes to establish the psychometric characteristics for use in patients with rectal cancer surgery.

Palabras clave : Low anterior resection syndrome; Transcultural adaptation; LARS Score.
