Purpose: Compare the pain of the kocher incision and midline incision in postoperative patients with cholecystectomy laparotomy.
Methods: Observational randomized controlled double sampling trial study
Results: Pain that was felt by patients after 24 hours postoperatively with the kocher incision technique, most showed a score of 3, which was 12 patients (60%), whereas pain felt by patients with a midline incision technique mostly showed a score of 2 ie there were 10 patients (50 %). Overall, the midline incision showed lower VAS results when compared to the kocher incision, where most of the VAS in the midline incision showed a score of 2, whereas the kocher incision showed a score of 3. The results of the mann whitney statistical test showed a value of p = 0.192 (p> 0 , 05), which means that there is no significant difference between the pain level of the kocher group and the midline group.
Conclusions: There was no significant difference between the level of pain in the group of patients who received the treatment with the kocher technique and the group with the midline technique.
