The debate tends to center on safety issues and the ability to achieve complete resection.

As always, the direction and line of approach is all important; a pre-frontal entry point is required so as to be able to access the roof of the third ventricle and deal with the origin of the cyst.

The matter is clearly not going to be resolved without a randomized prospective study.
