Objectives: The current study aims to translate and culturally adapt the Patient-Rated Elbow Evaluation (PREE) into Arabic while also investigating its reliability and validity. Methods: This questionnaire was translated following a clear and user-friendly guideline protocol. Cronbach’s alpha was used to assess the reliability and internal consistency of the items of PREE. Additionally, the constructive validity of PREE was evaluated against the 36-Item Short Form Survey (SF 36) and the Shoulder and Hand questionnaire. Results: A total of 38 participants were included in this study, of which 21 participants were re-evaluated for reliability testing. Cronbach’s alpha of the total score of Arabic PREE is 0.955 which indicates that the scale has a high level of internal consistency. There is a good correlation between PREE and with DASH score. The correlation between total AR PREE, function sub-AR PREE, and pain subscale AR PREE with DASH work sub-parameter r (0.527) with p-value (<0.05) indicates a significant correlation. Additionally, the correlation was assessed with another score SF 36 and the results were as follows. A moderate correlation between total PREE with physical health, physical function, and pain sub-scale of SF36, with coefficient interval (r) 0.37, 0.38, and 0.46 subsequently. Conclusions: The PREE- AR is s a comprehensible, valid, and reliable method to assess the functionality and pain of any patient with elbow pathology. Therefore, we believe that the PREE-AR questionnaire can be used by clinicians, researchers, and patients to report the pain and functionality of the elbow.
