Yes is can and it's called "REVASCULARIZATION" but the older we get, the less is the hearts ability to do this. I believe that after 70 yrs of age, its unlikely.

I am 23-years old about 5 6 and 151lbs. Healthy blood pressure and everything. I ve been hearing my heart beat in the form of a squealing noise. I hear it mostly when laying down and it gets louder when my heart rate goes up. It scared me first time I heard it (about 1 year ago it started). I m quite used to it now but I really don t understand why I m hearing it. Why now all of the sudden? Why is this occurring with me and not with most other? Basically..... why? Thanks,MT.
