Abstract

Osteoporosis and heart failure are 2 highly prevalent conditions, particularly among the elderly, both of which account for significant morbidity and mortality. In this review, we describe the epidemiology of osteoporosis and osteoporotic-related fractures in persons with heart failure. A review of the current literature regarding shared risk factors for heart failure and osteoporosis is presented, and potential common pathophysiologic mechanisms for these disorders are discussed.
