Kofoed, Philipp Blanke, Stephan Windecker, and Lars Søndergaard, M.D., D.M.Sc. for the GALILEO-4D Investigators Abstract

Puzzling subgroup from the GALILEO trial, which appears in the same issue of the periodical as an article that discredits the use of rivaroxaban as thromboprevention strategy :,

And yet, in this particular subgroup, a subclinical benefit on leaflet mobility is being suggested!  It would appear that the GALILEO will be discussed at length and in detail in the months and years to come.
