    Abstract

    Quality of life has become an important outcome measure in surgery. Its use as an end-point in clinical trials is well recognised. However, quality of life measurement in surgery is currently done mainly for research purposes, and still has to find a place in routine clinical practice. This paper presents an overview of the methodology and uses of quality of life assessments in surgical practice.
