In brief: Control but no cure
Over a period of 15 years or so, various new treatments have been introduced which have led to a much improved outlook for people with heart failure.

In brief: Good Tx: Yes; Cures?
Since most common cause atherosclerosis > coronary artery disease (even if lumens ok on angiography) > reduced blood flow ; heart muscle damage, aggressive treating factors driving atherosclerosis [lipoproteins (not cholesterol) blood sugar, bp, etc.
(to abnormally healthy levels], remove excess body water, keep BP low nl, treat with acei (aceon (perindopril) 1 of best) ; carvedilol, can greatly improve/reverse.

In brief: Depends
There are many causes of congestive heart failure (chf).
Some, like a viral cause or peripartum cardiomyopathy may reverse themselves once the offending agent is no longer present. Some, like an alcohol induced cause may reverse if a person abstains some like an ischemic or valvular cause may get partly better if blood flow is restored or the valve fixed. Some do not respond to any treatment.
