By means of a psychosocial questionnaire we analysed 483 patients in an ischaemic heart disease group and 101 patients in a prosthetic heart-valve group. The aim of the study was to compare the social characteristics and job demands of the two groups participating in a rehabilitation program. On the basis of our investigation, a special picture could be drawn about the coronary group. In a great number of our coronary patients significant migrational and social mobility are combined. The frequency of high-school education partly completed at evening schools was higher in this group. The number of managerial white-collar workers was five times as high as in the prosthetic-valve group. Variables reflecting job demands showed significant differences between the two groups.
