The testes, at an early period of fetal life, are placed at the back part of the abdominal cavity, behind the peritoneum, and each is attached by a peritoneal fold, the mesorchium, to the mesonephros.
Mesorchium is the fibrous sheath which attaches vascular and avascular structures of spermatic cord together.
