A study was presented Tuesday in the American Heart Association's Journal, "Circulation". It looked at the effect of Viagra in kids with PAH, a disorder in which the lungs are subjected to extremely high blood pressure.They found Viagra helped ease symptoms by expanding blood vessels and improving blood flow.

In this study, the kids taking Viagra were able to walk longer and breathe easier than traditional therapies.
