This article is aimed to review the current micro-RNA (miRNA) discoveries in clinical study in order to better characterize pathoetiology of comorbidity of HF and osteoporosis and possibly even finding miRNA targets, which would increase the level and accu­racy of prediction of the progress and/or treatment of both diseases.
