NBIR
Coming Soon

Project Title: The National Breast Implant Registry (NBIR)

Principal Investigators: Andrea Pusic, MD, MS; Charles N. Verheyden, MD, PhD

Clinical Coordinating Center: The Plastic Surgery Foundation

Participating Sites: All sites involved with breast implant procedures in the United States

Project Description: The PSF is working with the FDA and breast implant device manufacturers to launch a National Breast Implant Registry (NBIR) for the purpose of strengthening the post-marketing surveillance infrastructure for current and future breast implant devices. The NBIR will be a prospective, non-interventional, population-based, outcomes and safety surveillance registry and quality improvement initiative. Additional aims of the NBIR include serving as a potential infrastructure for post market studies; as well as providing an infrastructure for device manufacturers to facilitate the post-implant component of their device tracking data collection.

Status: The NBIR is currently in a Pilot Phase, with plans to launch broadly in 2018.
