This technique offers improved efficiency for small solute clearances by improving mixing of dialysate and enhancing the diffusive gradient between plasma and dialysate. Although this technique has been studied since the mid 70s under the synonym "reciprocating peritoneal dialysis," it has not found much clinical application. The urea clearance increases by as much as 30%, but the cost and inconvenience of provision of this type of dialysis has hindered its clinical application.
