Osteosynthesis parts are made of an absorbable polymer composition consisting of a matrix of lactic acid homopolymer, or a copolymer very high in lactic acid units, having discrete reinforcement elements embedded therein. The reinforcement elements are made of glycolic acid homopolymer or copolymers predominant in glycolic acid units. Such a composition may be shaped with a minimum of polymer degradation into osteosynthesis parts exhibiting good resilience, shock resistance, and tensile strength.
