With aging, left ventricular filling has revealed aprolonged relaxation and increased myocardial and chamber stiffness. This is proved by ani mal experiments. In this work, we studied the left ventricular indeces in young and aged by simple echocardiography (Mmode) which is suitable in physiological studies, simple handling and easily interpre^ed. Wefound that LVEDD. LVESD did not show any significant variation between the young and aged males andfemales. Also SD showed significant increase in agedfe males compared to the young females and aged males. FS which goes hand in hand with ejectionfraction showed no significant increase, in all studied groups is within the normal value (25-40%). Interventricular septal thickness and posterior wall thickness showed significant increase in agedmales.
