An improved functional attachment system for osteosynthesis by means of compression plates. The plates have straight or angled construction and a major axis for placement approximately parallel to the major axis of a bone. The plate defines holes in the areas of both ends; the holes are elongated in a direction approximately parallel to the plate's major axis and are adapted for receipt and passage of anchoring screws for attachment to a bone. Once the compression plate is attached to a fractured bone by means of anchoring screws passing through the holes, the screws can slide the length of the elongated holes such that muscular contraction will be converted into a compression at the bone fracture.
