Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To determine the COMQ-12 score in an adult population without active COM.

DESIGN:

Analysis of COMQ-12 scores in participants without active COM.

SETTING:

East Anglia, United Kingdom.

PARTICIPANTS:

70 healthy volunteers recruited from two local hospitals.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES:

COMQ-12.

RESULTS:

The median COMQ-12 score overall was two and the modal score was 0 with 27 (39%) participants achieving this score.

CONCLUSION:

We recommend that the 'normal' values defined in this study be seriously considered before contemplating intervention, especially when patients with low scores are considered for surgery.
