Single or double layer?

The uterine incision was then repaired with 0 chromic suture in a running locked fashion. ... The uterus was returned to the abdomen ... The rectus muscle was reapproximated with 2-0 Vicryl suture in an interrupted fashion. The fascial incision was closed with 0 Vicryl suture in a running fashion. The subcutaneous tissue was closed with 3-0 Vicryl suture in a subcuticular fashion.
Thanks!

Single, most likely. Usually they mentioned a second layer of uterine closure if it is performed.
