In brief: Depends
Depends on cause.
If prior heart attack, then chances of complete recovery of dead tissue is very unlikely. If no prior CAD or mi, then chances of recovery are higher..

In brief: No
Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle is too weak to pump blood and move it forward as effectively as the body needs.
When the heart muscle weakens there is no medication or treatment to reverse the weakening. The heart failure will worsen until the heart is so weak the only way to preserve life is to transplant a new heart.
