In brief: Quality of life

The quality of life after a heart transplant is better than before; with a heart able to pump out an appropriate amount of blood, energy level increases, tolerance of activity increases, overall physical condition improves.

In brief: A new heart

If a patient has irreversible damage to their heart to the point where it is not pumping blood well enough to sustain a reasonable quality of life (typically class iiib or IV heart failure) a heart transplant offers a new heart that can pump blood more efficiently.
However, it does come with its own medical issues that should be discussed at length with your doctor.
