 Inguinal Region - Dissector Answers
The gubernaculum ends up as a short ligament from ovary to uterus (ovarian ligament) and a longer ligament passing from the uterus through the inguinal canal, inguinal rings (round ligament of the uterus) to the labia majora.
The external spermatic fascia, cremaster muscle, and internal spermatic fascia are the coverings of the spermatic cord proper, i.e., they wrap around it.
Keep in mind that the descent involves an evagination of the abdominal wall and that this is where the inguinal canal starts (deep ring), this is also how the spermatic cord gets its layers from the layers of the abdominal wall.

 Round ligament pain
The sharp, jabbing type of round ligament pain shouldn't last longer than the few seconds in which you're changing position or getting up.
As your uterus grows during pregnancy, the ligaments stretch and thicken to accommodate and support it.
If you've been reassured by your practitioner that what you're feeling is round ligament pain, sit down and relax when the pain strikes.

Below, there are two apertures on either side: one for the passage of the femoral vessels and lumboinguinal nerve, and the other for the transmission of the spermatic cord in the male, and the round ligament of the uterus in the female.
It is also reflected from the sides of the uterus to the lateral walls of the pelvis as two expanded folds, the broad ligaments of the uterus, in the free margin of each of which is the uterine tube.
Between the two layers of the coronary ligament there is a large triangular surface of the liver devoid of peritoneal covering; this is named the bare area of the liver, and is attached to the diaphragm by areolar tissue.

 Lab Manual - Inguinal Region
Find the deep inguinal ring just lateral to the inferior epigastric vessels, as the transversalis fascia is evaginated and allows passage of the ductus deferens (or round ligament of the uterus), testicular vessels, and genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve.
The inferior epigastric vessels occupy the lateral umbilical (epigastric) fold; but they are not a "ligament" since they remain functional.
With the transversalis fascia intact, note how the inferior epigastric vessels pierce this tissue to enter the rectus sheath on the deep surface of the rectus abdominis muscle.

 hernias
This canal is present in both sexes: in the female it is narrow and conveys the round ligament of the uterus (a remnant of the gubernaculum) as it extends from the uterus to the labium majus.
Inguinal hernia is more likely to happen in males, partly because the presence of the larger inguinal canal produces a potential weak point in the anterior abdominal wall.
Alternatively, in the case of a direct inguinal hernia the loop of intestine may push through the abdominal wall slightly more medially where the wall is less strong and then emerge at the outside via the superficial ring (diagram).

On the lateral pelvic wall behind the attachment of the broad ligament, in the angle between the elevations produced by the diverging hypogastric and external iliac vessels is a slight fossa, the ovarian fossa, in which the ovary normally lies.
Reaching the free margin of this fold, it is reflected upward to cover the under and posterior surfaces of the transverse colon, and thence to the posterior abdominal wall as the inferior layer of the transverse mesocolon.

Other offsets are continued on the round ligament of the uterus, through the inguinal canal, to the integument of the labium majus and groin.
Small branches are given to the ureter and the uterine tube, and one passes on to the side of the uterus, and unites with the uterine artery.
At an early period of fetal life, when the testes or ovaries lie by the side of the vertebral column, below the kidneys, the internal spermatic or ovarian arteries are short; but with the descent of these organs into the scrotum or lesser pelvis, the arteries are gradually lengthened.

The spermatic cord passes through the inguinal canal in the male and the round ligament of the uterus traverses the canal in the female.
The body layers surrounding the intestinal bulge in the scrotum are as follows: skin, dartos muscle, membranous layer of the superficial fascia, external spermatic fascia (from the external oblique aponeurosis), the cremasteric fascia (from the internal oblique aponeurosis), and the internal spermatic fascia (from the transversalis fascia)
The deep inguinal ring persists as a defect in the transversalis fascia formed as the gonadal structures descended and the superficial inguinal ring is formed by the lateral one-half of the pubic crest and the lateral and medial crura of the external abdominal oblique aponeurosis.

Conclusion: Deliberate posterior cesarean hysterotomy is an option for fetal delivery with irreducible torsion, and round ligament plication may prevent recurrent torsion in the immediate puerperium.
Case: At the time of repeat cesarean section at term for fetal malpresentation, 180° torsion of the uterine corpus was diagnosed.
At laparotomy, the gravid uterus would not yield to anatomic repositioning, necessitating delivery through a deliberate posterior transverse hysterotomy.

 vas uterine fibroid info
Possible explanations for treatment failure include incomplete embolization, extremely large uterine fibroids, the presence of a uterine cancer (leiomyosarcoma) or coexisting disorder such as adenomyosis, and the persistence of alternative sources of blood for the fibroids (such as the ovarian artery and the round ligament artery).
Uterine fibroid tumors are extremely common, benign growths of the muscular wall of the uterus (smooth muscle); they are also known as myomas, leiomyomas, or leiomyomata.
While the cause of fibroid development is not known, studies have suggested that estrogen contributes to their growth and development since they tend to develop during adolescence and regress after menopause.

 Abdominal pain during pregnancy
Round ligament pain is generally a brief, sharp, stabbing pain or a longer-lasting, dull ache that you may feel on one or both sides of your lower abdomen or deep in your groin, usually starting in your second trimester.
Constipation is another common cause of abdominal discomfort throughout pregnancy, caused by hormones that slow the movement of food through your digestive tract and the pressure of your growing uterus on your rectum.
If you experience abdominal pain or cramping along with spotting, bleeding, fever, chills, vaginal discharge, faintness, discomfort while urinating, nausea and vomiting, or if the pain doesn't subside after several minutes of rest, call your practitioner.
