Definition of age is difficult. Of the many available, the anatomical definition is, perhaps, the best. Gross1 has clearly shown that, in embryonic life, the right side of the heart has a greater vascular tree than the left, and this relationship persists for some time after birth. As it assumes greater activity, however, the left ventricle becomes more and more richly supplied with blood, and with each succeeding decade, there is such an alteration of the vascular architecture that, at the seventh decade, the left-sided vasculature so overshadows that of the right as to point toward a relative right-sided anemia.
