Rodriguez said his jaw was fractured by a gunshot on June 26, 2017. He underwent surgery to remove a projectile that was lodged in a vertebra but he still needs treatment and jaw reconstruction surgery. "This constituent assembly is a perversion meant to consolidate them (the ruling party) in power. I'm protesting against that. It saddens me to see my country like this. With Chavez, we had a dictatorship with a 'political leader,' with Maduro we have a political disaster," he said. "I'm only 18 years old, but I'm living through the decline of Venezuela.

Salam Othman, a 14-year-old Syrian who was injured during the violence in her country four years ago, stands in front of her room in the new hospital run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in Amman, Jordan, September 8, 2015. According to Marc Schakal, head of the MSF mission in Jordan and Iraq, the Paris-based MSF opened a new hospital specialized in reconstructive surgery, that can admit 200 patients and provide services to war-wounded patients arriving from the region who do not have the opportunity to receive specialized surgical care in their own countries.

Fresa, 5, stands inside the dog shelter "Santuario Milagros Caninos" on the outskirts of Mexico City August 29, 2014. Fresa underwent reconstructive surgery after her previous owners hacked off half of her snout with a sharp object, possibly a machete, according to surgeon Jesus Paredes. After neighbours found Fresa wandering on the streets, they handed her over to a shelter where Paredes performed a three-hours intervention to enable her to breathe again through her nostrils, to remove her protruding jaw and reconstruct the lips with flaps of skin and mucous.

A piece of a tumorous liver, which was removed during surgery supported by a tablet computer to access and visualize planning data, lies next to a pair of scissors, at the Asklepios Hospital Hamburg-Barmbek August 15, 2013. The tablet computer uses augmented reality, which allows the liver to be filmed with an iPad and overlaid during an operation with virtual 3D models reconstructed from the real organ. Developed by Fraunhofer MEVIS in Bremen, this procedure helps locate critical structures such as tumors and vessels and is expected to improve the quality of transferring pre-operational resection plans into actual surgery.
