Thank you for the opportunity to respond to the letter from Englot et al. regarding our recent publication (Ryzí et al., 2015). We agree that there is a need for further detailed investigation into the reasons for surgical failure, and for seeking possibilities for re-operations and other treatment options after surgical failure. The reasons for the failures in our group were incomplete resections of the seizure on set zone in 21 patients (61.8 %) and additional epileptogenic regions in 13 patients (38.2 %) — five patients with bitemporal findings, six without MRI lesions in preoperative assessment, and two with focal cortical dysplasia type I in histology.
