Abstract
Background

Urinary incontinence is associated with reduced quality of life and given the high prevalence of people with this condition, it could be useful to know the impact of having urinary incontinence on physical, psychological and social aspects. The Spanish value set of EQ-5D was used to assign single scores to the EQ-5D-5L health states. EQ-5D-5L is a health-related quality of life questionnaire, which allows assessing health status. The aim of this study was to provide normative values of EQ-5D-5L in a population sample with urinary incontinence.

Study design

Cross-sectional study.

Methods

A total of 965 people with urinary incontinence (297 men and 668 women) were included in this study. EQ-5D-5L index, VAS and health status are showed in the current study considering gender, age group, region, marital status, smoking status, net monthly incomes of household and educational level.

Results

Higher prevalence was observed in women (69.22%) compared with men (30.78%). Mean (SD) EQ-5D-5L utility index and VAS score were 0.58 (0.40) and 53.91 (22.16), respectively, for overall population. The 16.1% (155 people) reported perfect health status (11111). The utility equivalent to set values 55555 was not reported by anyone.

Conclusion

This study provides normative values of EQ-5D-5L in a Spanish population sample with urinary incontinence.

Resumen
Antecedentes

La incontinencia urinaria es una patología que afecta a distintos aspectos físicos, psicológicos y sociales. Dada su prevalencia, sería útil conocer su impacto sobre la calidad de vida de las personas que la padecen. El conjunto de valores del EQ-5D desarrollado para la población española fue utilizado para asignar utilidades a los estados de salud definidos por el EQ-5D-5L. El objetivo fue proporcionar valores de referencia del EQ-5D-5L en una población con incontinencia urinaria.

Diseño de estudio

Estudio de corte transversal.

Métodos

Un total de 965 personas con incontinencia urinaria (297 hombres y 668 mujeres) fueron incluidas en el estudio. La utilidad del EQ-5D-5L, VAS y los estados de salud fueron analizadas en base a varias variables sociodemográficas.

Resultados

Mayor prevalencia en mujeres (69,22%) que en hombres (30,78%). La puntuación media y SD del índice EQ-5D-5L y VAS fueron 0,58 (0,40) y 53,91 (22,16), respectivamente, para la población general. El 16,1% (155 personas) comunicaron salud perfecta (11111). El peor estado de salud (55555) no fue comunicado por nadie.

Conclusión

Este estudio proporciona los valores de referencia en una muestra de población española con incontinencia urinaria.
