Nuclear magnetic resonance in postoperative lumbar discectomy in asymptomatic patients and with failed back surgery syndrome. Brain thalamus and globus pallidus: For the Macnab Criteria, results were considered to be excellent when the patient presented no pain or restriction of activity, good when there was occasional pain in the lower back or legs sufficient enough to interfere with the patient’s daily life activities or their ability to enjoy leisure time, normal with improved functional capacity but with intermittent pain severe enough to limit or modify work or leisure activities, and poor when there was no improvement or the improvement was not enough to permit increased activity and dlscectomia new surgical intervention may be necessary.
