Medical / Bone Augmentation Surgery
German term or phrase: palatinal gestielt
"Diese Maßnahme ermöglicht einerseits eine optimierte Weichteilrekonstruktion, eine sichere Ernährungslage für die Knochenblöcke und eine volumenkonstante Weichgewebsaugmentation, weil das Transplantat palatinal gestielt bleibt."

From a text about bone augmentation surgery.

I don't get "gestielt" here. It's bothered me before (see my question about "breitbasig gestielter Weichteillappen") and it's still troubling me. "Stemmed" really doesn't make a lot of sense, and gets no search engine support. TIA for any decent light you can shed on this - both here and in my other question.

..remains pedunculated on the palatal side.
Explanation:
a pedicle is a long, stemlike piece of tissue/flap, the opposite of broadbased.
What they are saying here is that the flap has a long stem up to the palate.
