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’.

The OVAMA questionnaire is validated and translated into different languages. Contact us for the latest version in your language of choice (see below for available translations) and the scoring instructions.

An English concept version can be accessed here.


The OVAMA questionnaire is currently available in:

  • Dutch
  • English

  • Swiss German

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.
