™ Incise retroperitoneum with a minimal 1-cm margin laterally to the testicle and medially alongside the vas deferens.
™ Mobilize peritoneum carefully across spermatic vessels.
™ Leave all vessels around the vas deferens and the peritoneal plane between vas and vessels intact. Try to avoid electrocautery as much as possible.
™ Mobilize the testicle carefully from the psoas fascia towards the inguinal ring.
™ Create new internal ring medially to the epigastric vessels (shortens the overall distance to the scrotal position).
™ Make an incision at the lower pole of the scrotum and provide a dartos pouch. Insert a laparoscopic grasper, guide it through a tunnel to the new inguinal ring, take the mobilized testicle and pull it into the scrotum without forced tension.
