What to do if a transplanted heart has no nerve supply, how does the cardiac output of a transplanted heart increase and adapt to physiological changes?

In brief: Hormonal +/- nervous

The transplanted heart responds to hormonal changes.
There is also some evidence that the transplanted heart may have some sympathetic re-innervation and possibly conduction of signals from the old sinus node to the new heart.
