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 a 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.
