Abstract
(EN)
Devices, systems, and methods are disclosed that help deliver an outer catheter or other medical devices to locations within a patient's body. The device comprises a transporter catheter configured to be located in a lumen of an outer catheter, the transporter catheter comprising a shaft, at least one orienting balloon and at least one anchoring balloon, the orienting balloon positioned on the shaft adjacent to the distal end of the shaft and configured to slidably engage an inner surface of a patient's vasculature, the anchoring balloon located on the shaft between the orienting balloon and the proximal end of the shaft, the anchoring balloon configured to non-slidably anchor the transporter catheter to the outer catheter, and the transporter catheter is configured to be pushed and/or torqued to advance and maneuver the outer catheter through a patient's vasculature.
