Medical - Medical: Dentistry / Sliding Flap Surgery
German term or phrase: Flip-Flap
"Nun ist soweit mobilisiert, daß der Lappen sich komplett und ohne Spannung im Bereich der Rezession applizieren läßt. Parallel dazu erfolgt jetzt die Schnittführung distal 35 mit anschließender Entepithelisierung. Auch hier erfolgt der Übergang mit einem ***Flip-Flap***. Dann folgt eine Periostschlitzung zur korronalen Verschiebung des Lappens."

I don't really understand any of this passage, much, but I ESPECIALLY don't understand what a "Flip-Flap" is supposed to be! This text is bad enough without the author trying to be Dr Seuss!

Secondary question: any ideas on what exactly is meant by "distal 35"? 35 refers to the tooth (from a common dental notation system). But is it "distal OF 35" or what?

I really hope someone can help, because I'm getting more confused as this text goes along.
