What is claimed is:

1. A modular medical device system comprising:

a parent module comprising a proximal end configured to remain outside the body of a patient and a distal end configured to go inside the body of a patient, the distal end comprising an inner lumen; and

an adapter module comprising a proximal portion and a distal portion, an attachment mechanism positioned at the proximal portion and comprising an interfacing element and an elongated element, wherein at least a portion of the interfacing element compresses to engage the inner lumen of the parent module, and wherein the elongated element connects the attachment mechanism to the distal portion of the adapter module.

2. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the elongated element comprises a conductor configured to electrically connect the distal portion of the adapter module to the outside of the patient.

3. The modular medical device system of claim 2, further comprising wherein the elongated element comprises an electrical connector that is smaller than the inner lumen of the parent module and is electrically coupled to the conductor.

4. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the elongated element comprises optical fibers configured to optically connect the distal portion of the adapter module to the outside of the patient.

5. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the elongated element comprises a steering wire configured to mechanically connect the distal portion of the adapter module to the outside of the patient.

6. The modular medical device system of claim 5, further comprising wherein the distal portion of the adapter module comprises an articulating element for steering a distal end of the modular medical device system using the steering wire.

7. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the interfacing element comprises a compressible metallic feature.

8. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the interfacing element comprises a bidirectional coil.

9. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the interfacing element comprises a leaf spring.

10. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the interfacing element comprises a stent-strut feature.

11. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the interfacing element is formed integrally with the material of the elongated element.

12. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the interfacing element is configured to engage an edge feature of the inner lumen of the parent module.

13. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising wherein the interfacing element includes a length that is attached to a portion of the elongated element and a length that is free from the elongated element.

14. The modular medical device system of claim 13, further comprising wherein the length of the interfacing element that is free from the elongated element is distal to the length of the interfacing element that is attached to the elongated element.

15. The modular medical device system of claim 1, further comprising one or more slender elements extending proximally from the distal portion of the adapter module to outside the body of the patient.

16. A modular medical device system comprises:

an adapter module comprising an elongated element, an interfacing element, a conductor and an electrical connector electrically coupled to the conductor and configured to electrically connect a distal end of the adapter module to the outside of a patient, wherein the interfacing element is configured to couple to a distal end of a medical device.

17. The modular medical device system of claim 16, further comprising wherein a proximal end of the medical device is configured to remain outside the body of the patient and the distal end of the medical device is configured to go inside the body of a patient.

18. The modular medical device system of claim 16, further comprising wherein the interfacing element couples to the distal end of an inner lumen of the medical device.

19. The modular medical device system of claim 16, further comprising wherein the interfacing element comprises a compressible element.

20. The modular medical device system of claim 16, further comprising wherein the elongated element connects the interfacing element to the distal end of the adapter module.
