Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background
Observational and interventional studies indicate a weak association between dietary salt intake and level of blood pressure (BP) in normotensive subjects or subjects with mild-moderate hypertension. The degree and mechanisms of salt-induced increases in blood pressure have not been previously determined in patients with resistant hypertension.

Conclusion
These results indicate that excessive dietary salt ingestion contributes importantly to the development of resistant hypertension. This effect occurs secondary both to intravascular fluid retention and impairment of vascular function.
