    Studies in Forensic Psychiatry

  • The peculiar looping arrangement exhibited by the cremasteric fibres indicates the fact that the testicle, during its descent from the loins to the scrotum, carried with it a muscular covering, at the expense of the internal oblique muscle.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • Again, if the hernia enter the inguinal wall close to the epigastric artery, it will find its way into the inguinal canal, become invested by the structures forming this part, and here it may suffer active constriction from the muscular fibres of the transverse and internal oblique or their cremasteric parts.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • But when an external inguinal hernia occurs in the female body, the bowel during its descent carries before it a cremasteric covering at the expense of the muscles E F, just in the same way as the testicle does in the foetus.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • The hernia, which follows the course of the spermatic vessels, must therefore necessarily become invested by cremasteric fibres.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • The cremasteric fibres, within the external ring, surrounding the cord; e, the cremasteric fibres looping over the cord outside the ring.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • The funnel-shaped sheath of the spermatic vessels covering the external hernia; upon it are seen the cremasteric fibres.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • In the adult, where the testicle has descended to the scrotum, the cremaster exists, and is serially continuous with the muscles, E F, covering the space L h; the meaning of which is, that the cremasteric parts of the muscles, E F, cover this space.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • These loops are united together by areolar tissue, and form a thin covering over the cord and testis, the cremasteric fascia.
