Superficial inguinal ring
Template:Infobox Anatomy In the aponeurosis of the external oblique, immediately above the crest of the pubis, is a triangular opening, the subcutaneous inguinal ring (superficial inguinal ring, external inguinal ring), formed by a separation of the fibers of the aponeurosis in this situation.
