Results of vocational rehabilitation of 1033 patients, treated with surgery because of bronchial cancer are reported. We compared persons with and without a 5 year survival rate. Persons with a survival rate of five years showed the best results; 52% were reemployed for full time or part time on year after surgery, 30% of them at their former working place. Rehabilitation for a full time or only a part time job depends among other factors on the extent of resection. Persons with partial resection (61 %) have, compared with pneumonectomies (29%), a better chance of reemployment in a full time or part time job. Within the five postoperative years 44% of all patients got fit for work. An precipitant invalidisation is not advisable.
