  • BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia resulting in hospitalization. The assessment of symptoms and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) can provide valuable information before, during, and after health care interventions for AF. AIMS We aimed to perform a translation and cultural adaptation of the Arrhythmia-Specific Questionnaire in Tachycardia and Arrhythmia (ASTA), and to evaluate the reliability and validity of its Polish version. METHODS The standard forward-backward translation procedure to translate the ASTA questionnaire into Polish was used. A total of 244 patients with AF at a mean (SD) age of 70.7 (10.7) years completed the questionnaire and were included in the study. Reliability was tested using internal consistency (Cronbach alpha) and validity with an item-total correlation, exploratory factor analysis (EFA), and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). RESULTS The ASTA symptom scale had satisfactory psychometric properties (alpha = 0.718), and the corrected item-total correlation was sufficient for most items (0.361-0.506), except for cold sweats (0.156). The ASTA HRQoL scale showed good psychometric properties (alpha = 0.855). Initial CFA analyses showed that the 1- and 2-factor models had similar properties, with strong factor loadings and satisfactory goodness-of-fit values according to the comparative fit index (0.947 for the 1-factor model vs 0.988 for the 2-factor model). A comparison of the 1-and 2-factor models showed that the close fit for the root-mean-square error of approximation was better for the 2-factor model (0.387 vs 0.193). A 2-factor EFA model was produced, and for factor 1 (physical scale), the varimax low ranged between 0.470 and 0.804, and for factor 2 (the mental scale), it ranged between 0.597 and 0.873. CONCLUSIONS The psychometric properties of the Polish version of the ASTA questionnaire were overall found to be satisfactory.
