AB  - AIM: To test the psychometric properties of the Croatian version of the Chronic
      Venous Insufficiency Quality of Life (CIVIQ) Questionnaire and to assess the
      quality of life in patients with chronic venous disorders of all stages. METHODS:
      This cross-sectional study performed between 2014 and 2015 in a private family
      practice assessed the factorial validity, cross-sectional validity, and
      reliability of the Croatian CIVIQ 20-item questionnaire completed by 428 adult
      patients (78% women) with chronic venous disorders classified according to the
      Clinical-Etiologic-Anatomic-Pathophysiologic (CEAP) C classification as stages
      C1-C6. RESULTS: Median patient age was 52 years (5th-95th percentile, 30-77). The
      distribution according to the clinical stages of chronic venous disorders was as 
      follows: C1 (n=78, 18%), C2 (n=192, 45%), C3 (n=53, 12%), C4 (n=44, 10%), C5
      (n=13, 3%), and C6 (n=48, 11%). The CIVIQ-20 factorial structure was unstable,
      and six items were excluded from the analysis to test the psychometric properties
      of the shortened version (CIVIQ-14). CIVIQ-14 has three dimensions (physical,
      psychological, and pain). Internal consistency reliability is high for the entire
      CIVIQ-14 (Cronbach alpha=0.92) and for all CIVIQ-14 dimensions (alpha>/=0.80).
      The median quality of life significantly decreased with higher CEAP C stages as
      follows: C1/C2 (86, 50-100); C3/C4 (75, 36-98); C5/C6 (67, 31-95) (P<0.001).
      Post-hoc analysis showed a higher quality of life in C1/C2 than in other groups
      (P<0.001). CONCLUSION: The shortened CIVIQ-14 version is useful for assessing the
      quality of life in patients with chronic venous disorders in everyday clinical
      practice. To achieve a stable validated instrument, we recommend a cross-cultural
      validation of items that have loadings on more than one factor.
