Abstract

Silicone breast implants have evolved through five generations and over 240 styles of breast implants have been delivered to the marketplace.1 However, there are little high quality data with which to make reliable, evidence-based evaluations of the risks of breast implants, and to date, the advantage of one type over the other is uncertain. Clinical quality registries (CQRs) enable evaluation of device performance, safety, and quality of care for patients. Just as breast implants have evolved and improved over the last decades, so too has clinical registry expertise and technology.2 Registries now support improved data capture, data linkage, analysis and reporting, and are a recognized contributor to health systems that provide high-quality patient care.3 The current generation breast implant registries promises to improve long-term breast implant safety, but key stakeholder support and participation is critical.
