Background: More than 600,000 cholecystectomies are being performed laparoscopically each year in United States. Incidence of Bile Duct Injuries (BDI) reported in laparoscopic cholecystectomy ranges from (0.2% to 0.5%) which is higher than the reported injuries in open cholecystectomy (0.1% to 0.2%). Despite of many techniques that were described and many studies designed for dissection of CALOT`S triangle, there is no consensuses about an appropriate or a standard method for dissection that claimed to prevent BDI. All trials are aiming to decrease the number of injuries but no one is superior to other in preventing injury. Methods and Results: The study enrolled 120 patients with symptomatizing chronic calcular cholecystitis. The technique that was done for all patients followed the same principles for dissection of CALOT`s triangle with accomplishing criteria of critical view of safety dissection, but starting from right side or what is called (Right posterior approach). There were 27 patients who expressed very difficult dissection. The GB was punctured in 4 cases with bile and stones leakage occurred. Post-operative pain was tolerable. No recorded cases of major post- operative leak or life threaten morbidities. Conclusion: Dissection of CALOT’s by right posterior approach technique represents one more step for safer laparoscopic cholecystectomy, which is helpful in reduction of morbidities specially the vascular and duct injuries. We recommend this safe technique for junior doctor especially during their steep learning curve.
