Abstract: Fifteen patients with recurrence after surgery for lung cancer were clinically investigated in terms of the validity and the indication of reoperation. 1) In most of cases with reoperation for recurrence, the disease stage was stage I lung cancer at the time of the initial operation. 2) In five out of the eight patients who underwent node dissection, nodal involvement was positive (62.5%). 3) A longer survivor is predicted in patients with negative node metastasis at the initial and the second operations. 4) Reoperation for recurrence is required for obtaining a longer survivor, if possible. The surgical outcome for lung cancer has been more and more improved. However, a five year survival rate is not satisfactoried with as large as 25 to 35%. It is great concern about the treatment of postoperative recurrence. Recently advances in the adjuvant therapy of chemotherapy and radiation enabled us to make the survival rate longer. In rare cases with localized recurrence, it has become possible to perform a radical excision for recurrence. The purpose of this study is to clarity the feasibility and validity of reoperation on the basis of clinical experience with the 15 patients who underwent re-excision for recurrence.
