Ischaemic heart disease is a common health problem after the age of 40, it has a several complication including changes which has very important effect on the heart. This disease causes myocardial changes, which could be physically evaluated by echocardiographic type "combison 530D model voluson 530D". which was used to evaluate the left ventricular structure parameters(Left Ventricular Internal Diameter in diastole and systole LVIDd & LVIDs, Inter Ventricular Septum Thickness in diastole and systole IVSTd & IVSTs, Posteriov Wall Thickness of left ventricular(LV)in diastole and systole PWTd & PWTs). Evaluation of left ventricular geometry by using specific formula of(Left Ventricular Mass LVM , Left Ventricular Mass Index LVMI and Relative Wall Thickness of LV in diastole and systole RWTd & RWTs). The study sample included two groups: control group (Group I),and group Ischaemic Heart Disease (IHD) (Group II). Control group constituted of (40) normal individuals and group II constituted of (45) ischaemic heart disease patients.
