Description of registry

Breast implants are used for two purposes: reconstruction after the breast has been removed due to cancer, and for enlargement of the breast for aesthetic reasons.
Every year, breast cancer is diagnosed in 8 000 women in Sweden, and about 2 000 women need to undergo removal of the entire breast. The absence of a breast results both in well-documented functional impairment and low health-related quality of life.

Volume over the past operating year

About 4 000 registrations per year

Note: Variable lists are updated on a regular basis and should therefore be seen as preliminary. For the latest version, please contact the registry.
