Staying active will always keep your heart healthy regardless of weight. Performing regular exercise reduces your risk of heart disease.
Excess cholesterol gets deposited in the arteries obstructing the blood flow and increase the risk of heart failure or stroke. To keep your cholesterol at a healthy level, you must follow a healthy diet rich in HDL cholesterol.
High blood pressure is known to be a major risk factor for heart failure or stroke. Lifestyle changes make a lot of difference in keeping your blood pressure levels within normal range. Limiting excess salt diet also reduces your risk of developing high blood pressure.

A heart transplant surgery is suggested in severe cases of heart failure. It is also considered when the patient does not respond to other medications or medical procedures. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia.
During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision in the center of the chest and opens the rib cage by performing sternotomy. A heart-lung bypass machine is connected which makes the blood circulate around your body. Your heart is then removed leaving behind a section of right and left atria. Then, the new heart is connected to the aorta and other main arteries. Once the new heart is able to pump the blood and is stable, then the heart-lung machine is removed. Finally, the incision is closed with suture and then covered with sterile dressing.
