BINOCAR Registers

British and Irish Network of
Congenital Anomaly Researchers


Welcome to BINOCAR


Who are we?


We are a group of researchers who work closely with several congenital anomaly registers across the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and the European Union. 


This website, in partnership with EUROCAT, provides information and resources for researchers, health professionals, parents and other members of the public.

What is a congenital anomaly?


A congenital anomaly is defined as any defect present at delivery, probably originating before birth, and includes structural, chromosomal, genetic and biochemical defects and malformations.
