Through the scrotal skin, hold the first testis stable between the index finger and the thumb of the non-dominant hand and make a longitudinal scrotal incision. Apply mild pressure to exteriorize the testis still contained within the tunica vaginalis. Incise the vaginal tunic and apply a mosquito forceps where it attaches to the epididymis along the ligament of the tail of the epididymis. Separate the ligament of the tail of the epididymis from the tunic without avulsing the tail of the epididymis from the testis. Then release the tunic exposing the ductus deferens, arteries and venous pampiniform plexus.
