Australian Breast Device Registry
The Australian Breast Device Registry (ABDR) is a Commonwealth Government Initiative established to monitor the safety and quality of procedures involving implantable breast devices.
Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine is working in collaboration with the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS) and Breast Surgeons of Australian & New Zealand Inc. (BreastSurgANZ) to implement the Registry nationwide.
The Registry will capture data on all Australian patients undergoing breast device surgery, that is, surgery with a breast implant or tissue expander. It will contribute to our understanding of the long term safety of implanted breast devices and help to improve patient safety.
