One Versus 2-stent Strategy for the Treatment of Bifurcation Lesions in the Context of a Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion. A Multicenter Registry
Conclusions Bifurcation lesions in CTO can be approached similarly to regular bifurcation lesions, for which provisional stenting is considered the technique of choice. After propensity score matching, there were no differences in procedural or mid-term clinical outcomes between the simple and complex strategies. (Source: Revista Espanola de Cardiologia)

Prevalence and Postdischarge Incidence of Malignancies in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome
Conclusions Among patients admitted for an acute coronary syndrome, 3.8% had a history of malignancy, with less than 50% considered cured. The incidence of new malignancies was 3.4% and both types of malignancies substantially impaired the long-term prognosis. (Source: Revista Espanola de Cardiologia)

Association Between Ischemic and Bleeding Risk Scores and the Use of New P2Y12 Inhibitors in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome
Conclusions New P2Y12 inhibitors were more frequently prescribed among ACS patients with lower CRUSADE bleeding risk. However, an ischemic risk paradox was found, with higher use of these agents in patients with lower ischemic risk based on GRACE risk score estimates. These results underscore the importance of risk stratification to safely deliver optimal therapies. (Source: Revista Espanola de Cardiologia)

Conclusions Nonfamilial hypercholesterolemia genetic hypercholesterolemia families concentrate risk alleles for high LDL-C. Their contribution varies greatly among families, indicating the complexity and heterogeneity of these forms of hypercholesterolemias. The gene score explains a small percentage of LDL-C, which limits its use in diagnosis. (Source: Revista Espanola de Cardiologia)
