Among 1813 persons with bronchial carcinoma in the years 1970-1974 475 were treated with surgery; more than 85% being older than 60 years. 299 of these patients had a survival time of at least 12 months. 64.9% of them received a cardiac treatment, 7.7% were only followed up. Bronchial infections were more common in these patients than in the average Berlin population. Among the 207 patients who had a survival time of more than 12 months at the end of 1974 56 were working; 41 from the 74 patients belonging to the age group younger than 65 years, 15 from the 133 patients belonging to the age group older than 65 years (pensioners). General recommendations concerning systematic controlled care should be given for persons resected for bronchial carcinoma. Systematic cardiac treatment should be provided.
