Definitions for direct closure. I'm thinking that complex closures if necessary for the donor site should be covered. Anyone? Thoughts?

Direct closure is used for most acute and uncomplicated lacerations. The principle of direct closure of wound is minimal undermining, layered closure without tension, and splinting to avoid traction on the wound edges. Do make sure to justify this from the Op report.
