Our experience using automated percutaneous nucleotomy for treatment for herniated disc is presented. A total of 42 5 patientes, aged between 18 and 58 years and operated from June 88 to December 1992, has been included. Patients were clinically assessed at 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months after surgery. Satisfactory results were found in 71% of cases. As for complications, there was only a case of discitis. In 29% of patients, the outcome was poor. An important group of failures were due to bad selection of patients regadings psychological profile.
