Cholecystectomy is the most common surgical procedure done laparoscopicaly worldwide. Many techniques and approaches are used like (infundibular technique, fundus first, partial or subtotal cholecystectomy), However the critical view of safety (CVS) technique is a safe option and appears to minimize bile duct injury. We tried to determine the safety of this technique in patients managed with laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Hence, a prospective study was carried on during 4 years; 2012-2016 and a total of 500 patients with gallstone diseases managed with laparoscopic cholecystectomy at Al Sader Medical city in Al Najaf Al Ashraf governorate. The mean age of the patients was 42.5 (range: 20-65) years. Our patients were 382 Females and 118 males. All LCs were completed successfully with no conversion. Total operating time ranged from 40-70 minutes. No mortalities occurred in the study, CBD injury in only one patient. In conclusion, the Critical View of Safety technique is a safe option and recommended to be the gold standard technique in the laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
