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: Any site performing breast implant procedures in the United States is invited to participate

Project Description: The Plastic Surgery Foundation has collaborated with the FDA and breast implant device manufacturers to develop the National Breast Implant Registry (NBIR) to strengthen the post-marketing surveillance infrastructure for current and future breast implant devices. The NBIR is a prospective, non-interventional, population-based, outcomes and safety surveillance registry and quality improvement initiative. The NBIR collects clinical, procedural and outcomes data at the time of operation and any subsequent reoperations for all US patients receiving breast implants. Plastic Surgeons that enter data into the NBIR will be able to compare their practice performance and outcomes to the registry aggregate.

Status: The NBIR is currently open for registration!
