Pathogenesis of OHSS

After stimulation with exogenous and endogenous hCG and FSH, multiple follicles are stimulated. These follicles then secrete VEGF which act on mutated VEGF receptors of vessel walls, increasing their permeability. As a result, fluid leaks from these vessels into the abdominal cavities causing ascites.

--Mark Hill (talk) 11:58, 24 October 2015 (AEDT) This is a good student-drawn summary diagram relevant to the project topic. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) should have been used in full initially or the acronym explained. The image contrast is very low making the drawn component difficult to see.
