Outcomes included endothelial function, arterial stiffness, biomarkers, HRQoL and markers of anxiety and depression.RESULTS: Sixteen HTx recipients (mean age 52 years, 75{\%} male) completed the study.

Depression score decreased significantly in HIIT patients (p = 0.04) with no change in CON patients (p = 0.75), whereas anxiety score decreased significantly in both HIIT (p < 0.01) and CON (p < 0.05) patients.
