1. A method for performing an intravascular procedure, comprising:
inserting a guide catheter into a blood vessel;
passing a device guide through the guide catheter so that a distal portion of the device guide, having a semi-tubular shape, protrudes from a distal end of the guide catheter into the blood vessel; and
inserting an intravascular device through the guide catheter via the distal portion of the device guide to a target site in the blood vessel,
wherein the semi-tubular shape defines a radial opening extending along the distal portion, and wherein passing the device guide comprises rotating the device guide so that the radial opening faces toward the target site, whereby the intravascular device exits the device guide toward the target site via the radial opening.
