To the Editor, We have read with interest the reply to Kose et al. by Teles et al. . The authors commented on the deep supraspinatus muscle plane block (DSMPB) performed by Kose et al. in terms of nomenclature being used and the technique's novelty. Thanks to the rapidly growing use of ultrasound (US) during daily anesthesia practice, definitions and names of novel interfascial plane blocks have continued to evolve. However, the new techniques of the current blocks may end up being defined as new blocks. At this critical point, we should be careful about what nomenclature we use for these new techniques.
