Looking for the exact or more prevalent cause of ascites. Is it portal hypertension or decreased oncotic pressure in the vessels? Also is hydrostatic pressure the same as portal hypertension?

Thanks guys!

Did you look up portal hypertension and hydrostatic pressure? Do that, and see what you can figure out. Tell us what you learned and we can help you if you have further confusion....but we don't do homework for you.
