OVAMA questionnaire

OVAMA questionnaire

The OVAMA questionnaire is a disease-specific patient-reported outcome measure for measuring vascular malformation appearance, symptoms and satisfaction. It comprises four scales: ‘general symptoms’, ‘head and neck symptoms’, ‘appearance’, and ‘satisfaction with treatment strategy and outcome’.

Validation of the OVAMA questionnaire is currently in its finishing phase. As soon as the validation is finished, the questionnaire will be made publicly available on this website including the scoring instructions.

For now, access the concept version here.


The OVAMA questionnaire is currently available in:

  • Dutch
  • English
  • Spanish

Translations are underway for:

  • German/Swiss
  • French
  • Norwegian
  • Danish

We have a protocol for translation and cross-cultural validation, so that it is easy for local groups to correctly conduct such studies independently (which we are also planning to publish). If you are interested in translating or validating the OVAMA questionnaire in your local language, please contact us.
