German to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical: Dentistry / preprosthetic surgery
German term or phrase: quer vernäht
"Entfernung des Zungenbändchens
Das Zungenbändchen wird an der Zungenunterseite längs durchtrennt, der Defekt wird dann **quer vernäht.**"

I always seem to have a block about "quer" and I can't come up with anything I like for this. (I'm assuming "longitudinally incised" for "längs durchtrennt", but I'm open to suggestions if they help deal with the rest of it.)
