Inferiorly, each testis is connected to the wall of the scrotum by a scrotal ligament which is a remnant of the gubernaculum. Sever the scrotal ligament and the testis, which is still surrounded by the coverings of the spermatic cord, from its scrotal compartment. Free the remainder of the spermatic cord from the surrounding tissue and trace it to the superficial inguinal ring.
