In brief: Pulmonary HTN

In many cases, pulmonary hypertension is irreversible.
Treatment options are limited especially when there is no clear cause. In other cases, such as pulmonary emboli, it is reversible with proper treatment and some time. It truly depends on the cause of pulmonary hypertension.

In brief: PH

Pulmonary hypertension (ph) may be caused by a variety of conditions and/or diseases.
Some are reversible and many are treatable. Regardless, you need to discuss your particular situation with your physician.
