In brief: No

An angiogram is a minimally invasive examination of the blood vessesl used to make a diagnosis or treat a problem diagnosed by prior noninvasive studies.
It can be performed on any age as long as there are indication and the risks of the procedure outweigh any the risks.

In brief: No

Most persons who need angiograms are older persons but there are congenital problems which might require an angiogram in a younger person.
And in the extremely old patient, i would not exclude doing an angiogram because of age alone. Some patients even at an advanced age are quite active and may still be a candidate for aggressive management including surgery valve replacement, or stents.
