Objective: Pelvic floor disorders are common and include a wide spectrum of conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, voiding and/or defecation dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, and several chronic pain syndromes. There is a need for a validated and reliable inventory to evaluate colorectal anal distress in women with pelvic floor disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate the reliability and validity of the Turkish version of the CRADI-8 for the evaluation of colorectal distress.
