The aim of this study was to evaluate (1) the effect of endurance training on left ventricular and right ventricular diastolic function and (2) whether the normal aging effect on left ventricular and right ventricular diastolic function is slowed by endurance training. A total of 269 healthy subjects were prospectively enrolled for echocardiographic evaluation. Five groups were defined on the basis of age and athletic activities: (1) young (18 to 39 years) nonathletes (n = 62), (2) veteran (>or… CONTINUE READING
