Abstract/Summary Experimental data indicate that aldosterone excess and high dietary salt ingestion combine to worsen vascular function. To what degree this interaction occurs in humans is unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of salt diet and aldosterone on arterial stiffness and endothelial function in subjects with resistant hypertension.
