In brief: Possibly

FDA approved treatments include oral, inhaled and infusion medications.
These treatments widen lung blood vessels and ease the symptoms of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH).

In brief: Pulmonary HTN

Sometimes. When treatment is started early it's not unusual for this condition to improve with therapy but there are some cases that worsen in spite of therapy though therapy even then may slow progression of the disease.
