The Australian Breast Device Registry (ABDR) is a Commonwealth Government health initiative that records information on surgeries involving breast devices, such as breast implants. Managed by Monash University, the ABDR is endorsed by major surgical societies in Australia.

To identify and report on possible trends and complications associated with breast device surgery; to track the long-term safety and performance of implantable breast devices; and to identify best surgical practice and optimal patient health outcomes.

Your information makes an invaluable contribution to the ABDR. We are a long-term project to help safeguard the health of people undergoing breast device surgery. For many patients the ABDR provides peace of mind in the event of a product recall.  Plus, participation is easy.

BIA-ALCL: (Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma) is a rare type of cancer of the immune system. It is not breast cancer. The TGA (Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration) website has information about ALCL for consumers and health professionals. Or call the TGA on 1800 809 361.
