The problem of CSF drainage and brain shift remains, however. The authors advise positioning the patient with the cyst at the highest point. Other studies [18,19] have pointed to the value of intraoperative MRI-based updating of the pre-operative image data sets in such situations. The decompression of cystic lesions and multi-loculated hydrocephalus under continuous (every 3 seconds) MRI scanning has also been described ; the changes of the relationships on drainage and fenestration of the cysts can then be observed in real time. This, of course, requires an intraoperative MRI set-up.
