Description:
Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy (LC) is one of the commonest operations performed by surgeons today. Despite the decreasing incidence of bile duct injury (BDI) since the introduction of LC, it still remains a major complication today 1 . The commonest cause of BDI is misidentification of the anatomy of Calot’s Triangle. A technique of identification of this anatomy, called the critical view of safety (CVS), was first described by Strasberg et al. in the mid-nineties and has been shown to significantly reduce the incidence of BDI 1-3 . Despite its success, it has failed to gain universal acceptance and the infundibular approach to dissection is still being taught today.
