Juan Fariz Oktorian, Warsinggih, Muhammad Asykar Palinrungi.

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.

Key words: Surgical Pain, Laparotomy Cholecystectomy, Kocher Incision, Midline Incision
