1. A medical device comprising:
a tubular member having a proximal end, a distal end, and a channel extending between the proximal and distal ends, wherein a distal portion of the channel is displaced relative to a central longitudinal axis of the tubular member, wherein the distal portion of the channel is defined by a cap secured to the distal end of the tubular member, wherein the distal portion of the channel is housed within a lumen of the cap, wherein a position of the distal portion of the channel does not change relative to the lumen, wherein the lumen has a greater cross-sectional dimension than a cross-sectional dimension of the distal portion of the channel and the lumen surrounds the distal portion of the channel, wherein the channel crosses the central longitudinal axis of the tubular member between a proximal end of the cap and a distal end of the cap, and wherein a distal-most end of the channel opens through a wall of the cap that defines the lumen.
