Sentence Length

I know patent applications are generally written in a particular way, but is there any need for a sentence in the original text to be over 220 words long?

Other patent applications I have done have had their components divided into sentences that were readable and understandable, but anything over 200 words cannot make sense – even in the original language.

I would welcome discussion about such mammoth sentences and how other translators have dealt with them.
