INGUINAL CANAL-SUPERFICIAL INGUINAL RING

1. V shaped opening in the medial end of the external oblique aponeurosis, above + lateral to the pubic tubercle.
2. The lateral crus of the V is attached to the pubic tubercle.
3. The medial crus of the V is attached to the pubic crest, near the symphysis.
4. The posterior crus arises from the attachment of the lateral crus, whereby some fibers (reflected part of the inguinal ligament) pass up behind the cord to attach to the rectus sheath.
5. The spermatic cord/round ligament overlies the pubic tubercle.
