Abstract
Purpose: The relationship between severity of voiding dysfunction and quality of life in children with daytime wetting was analyzed. Materials and Methods: The relationship between age, gender, severity of voiding dysfunction (measured by DVSS) and quality of life (measured by PinQ) in the child with daytime wetting was analyzed. Twenty-four children (4 males, 20 females) aged 5-10 years (xˉ 8.17 years, SD 1.37) and their parents completed the DVSS and PinQ. Results: Parent and child total DVSS and total PinQ Scores had similar results with only a significant mean difference between the parent total DVSS scores based on gender. Only Gender with Parental Total DVSS Score (r = 0.462, p = 0.023) and Child Total DVSS Score with Parent Total DVSS Scores (r = 0.472, p = 0.020) were significant correlations. Conclusions: Results illustrate the importance of early recognition and intervention to minimize the impact daytime wetting has on the child.
