Depends: Since there are many causes, the answer depends on the cause. For example, if someone is born with a congenital anomaly, correcting the defect may correct the problem. However, if it is due to a multifactorial inflammatory atherosclerotic process then we may manage the disease, prevent progression - even achieve some regression- but we do not "cure" it.
