Would the following wound repair be a simple repair of the ear?

Note reads: length 5 cm; location, ear; complexity, complex 2/2 location, length, full thickness including cartilage; depth, through skin, cartilage; contamination, the wound did not require removal of particulate matter; exploration of wound showed no foreign body; the wound was closed with 6-0 nylon x 11 sutures; the cartilage was not sutured, only the skin.

Thanks for any help.

Simple repair

Sounds like simple repair to me. Sutured only skin. No evidence of layered closure.

Hope that helps.
