This is a treatable illness, but not curable. Lung transplant for pulmonary hypertension is a special case - you must transplant "en-bloc" the heart and both lungs. The reason for this is that if you transplant a normal lung into a patient with Pulmonary hypertension the new lung will develop pulmonary hypertension.
