Abstract: Background: Left ventricular torsion, resulting from the rotation of the base and apex of the ventricle in opposite directions, may be an important component of normal cardiac function both at rest and with exercise. The effect of exercise on torsion in the general population and the influence of aging on changes in torsion with exercise are not known.
