Andre Braugher, who portrays Detective Frank Pembleton on television's popular police drama "Homicide," was honored by the Maryland Heart Association at its annual Heart Ball at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore. The reason? His realistic and compelling portrayal of a stroke survivor.Braugher told me: "I'm glad the portrayal has had a positive effect, and given broader understanding to the effects of stroke -- especially among African-Americans."Among the 750 attendees at the gala, which had as its theme Monte Carlo's Grand Prix, were Brian King, chairman of the board of the Maryland Affiliate of the American Heart Association, and his wife, Anne Lynn King; and ball co-chairs Chris Thomson, executive director of St. Joseph Medical Center; Dr. Judy A. Reitz, senior vice president of operations at Johns Hopkins Hospital; Bill Balke, a Hopkins cardiologist, and his wife, Denise Quandt, vice president of provider relations at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Women with migraines that cause vision changes are more likely to suffer a stroke than those without a history of the severe headaches, researchers reported yesterday. Scientists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta found that women whose migraines were accompanied by vision loss had a 70 percent greater risk of stroke than women who don't get migraines. Women who saw lines or spots shortly before or during their migraines had a 25 percent increased risk.

DR. MARIAN LAMONTE, director of the University of Maryland Medical Center's new Brain Attack Team, knows the frustration of living between the cutting edge of medical knowledge and the need to spread the word.The calls come in from hospitals in the area, describing a person who has come in with stroke symptoms and asking whether the team can help. Too often it turns out that the call comes after those crucial hours when new therapies can make a huge difference in a patient's ability to recover -- leaving Dr. LaMonte to wonder how much better that person's quality of life would have been had help come sooner.
