The average survival of a person with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) after diagnosis is estimated to be around 2.8 years, however individual prognosis may be better or worse depending on a variety of factors including age and severity of PAH. Studies have demonstrated survivals ranging from less than 1 year to over 7 years. Current treatments are helpful in controlling/managing symptoms experienced by people with PAH, but unfortunately no treatment has significantly improved survival.
