Journal: Annals of Epidemiology. 2007 Feb 23; [E-publication ahead of print]

Authors and affiliations: Fryzek JP, Holmich L, McLaughlin JK, Lipworth L, Tarone RE, Henriksen T, Kjoller K, Friis S.

PMID: 17321754

Purpose: Numerous epidemiologic studies have demonstrated that breast implants are not associated with connective tissue diseases (CTDs). However, many CTDs are rare, and continued follow-up of women with breast implants is warranted.

Methods: We extended by 5 years the follow-up of our earlier population-based cohort study of Danish women with cosmetic breast implants (n = 2761) and comparison groups of women with other types of cosmetic surgery (n = 8807).

All women were followed from January 1977 through December 2001. Hospitalization and outpatient data for CTD and ill-defined and other rheumatic conditions in the implant and comparison groups were compared with those in the general Danish population. Additionally, CTDs and Fibromyalgia were confirmed through medical chart review, and direct comparisons of the breast implant cohort with the comparison cohort were performed.

Results: When compared with general population rates, CTDs were not statistically significantly elevated in either the implant or the comparison cohorts. However, unspecified rheumatism was similarly increased in the implant (standardized rate ratio = 1.9; 95% confidence interval = 1.6 to 2.2) and comparison (standardized rate ratio = 1.5; 95% confidence interval = 1.4 to 1.7) cohorts. In analyses of diagnoses validated by chart review, women with cosmetic breast implants compared with those having other types of plastic surgery or consultation for plastic surgery had no statistically significant excess for any specific confirmed CTD or combined CTDs (hazard ratio = 1.3; 95% CI = 0.9 to 1.9).

In addition, there was no relation between breast implants and confirmed Fibromyalgia (hazard ratio = 1.2; 95% CI = 0.6 to 2.1).

Conclusion: This extension of our earlier cohort study further supports the consensus of epidemiologic research that breast implants are unrelated to the development of CTD.
