Is pulmonary regurgitation reversible?

I have been diagnosed of having pulmonary regurgitation. Is this reversible? I don’t have high blood pressure.

Pulmonic regurgitation is mild and of no clinical consequence in many cases and is not really related to high blood pressure. It is generally not reversible. Its importance really depends on how much regurgitation is present and if the right ventricle has any problems managing the leaky pulmonic valve.
