Heart is the most vital organ of human body. It works incessantly without stopping even for a moment. If it stopped even for a moment, man would die. Taking thsi fact into account, Nature has created special type of muscles for the heart. In other parts of the body, if any muscles is damaged new similar muscle-tissues are formed in the smae place. But this is not true for the heart muscles. They die due to a heart attack.
