    Correct answer:

    Correct, there's caput medusae due to portal hypertension.

    To distinguish between portal hypertension and vena cava inferior obstruction, observe the flow direction; in vena cava inferior obstruction the blood flows towards the head, in portal hypertension (and vena cava superior obstruction) the flow is towards the legs.
