This video demonstrates the steps in performing a standard cholecystectomy in an uninflamed gallbladder using the "French technique" with surgeon standing between the patient's legs. The surgeon demonstrates safe dissection of the Calot's triangle to identify the cystic duct and artery as well as a small posterior branch. The patient also had an accessory bile duct, which was identified during the removal of gallbladder from the liver bed and controlled.
