A Russian adaptation of the tinnitus handicap inventory.
Int J Audiol. 2015 Jul; 54(7):485-9.IJ

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To establish a Russian version of the English THI.

DESIGN

The English THI (THI-E) was translated into Russian by two bilingual investigators, independently. The final Russian THI version (THI-R) was constructed by a third investigator, from the two translations. This version was administered to fifty consecutive patients at a tinnitus clinic. Participants also assessed the loudness of their tinnitus, and completed the Russian versions of the Beck's depression inventory and the state anxiety Inventory.

STUDY SAMPLE

The participants were fifty consecutive patients (older than 18 years of age with a tinnitus lasting over three months) who were treated at a tinnitus clinic.

RESULTS

A very good internal consistency was found (α = 0.94), with significant correlation between the THI-R score and the Beck depression inventory score. Factor analysis confirmed a uni-dimensional structure of the inventory.

CONCLUSIONS

A valid and reliable THI-R questionnaire was constructed.
