The ABDR Management and Steering Committee oversee the development and release of reports from validated data in the ABDR database.
The first ABDR report, incorporating data collected between 2012 – 2016, has been published. We would like to thank all three of the medical professional groups (plastic, cosmetic and general breast surgeons), health care providers and patients contributing to this important health project. Preparations for the 2017 annual report, and individual surgeon reports are currently underway.
The format of surgeon reports is currently being piloted and is expected to include data on patient numbers, reasons for surgery, plane of implantation, number of primary vs revision surgeries, as well as on complications such as device rupture and capsular contracture.
Only aggregate data will be available for public reports; individual surgeons will be able to access their patients’ data.
The ABDR Reporting Structure can be summarised as:
