Transversalis fascia

The transversalis fascia lines the abdominal cavity. It forms the posterior layer of the rectus sheath below the arcuate line and the internal spermatic fascia of the spermatic cord.

The deep inguinal ring begins as an outpouching of transversalis fascia just lateral to where the inferior epigastric vessels intersect the inguinal ligament.

The transversalis fascia is separated from the peritoneum by a layer of fatty areolar connective tissue.
