Abstract

The International Collaboration of Breast Registry Activities (ICOBRA) involves the national plastic surgery societies of several countries, including Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. 1 Its inception was triggered by the Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP) crisis in France in 2010. It was clear at this time that no existing or past breast implant registry was in a position to alert government and regulatory authorities.
