An osteosynthesis clip consisting of a central member and two side members. The central member includes two portions with an outwardly-open obtuse angle therebetween, and the distal ends of the side members include a sloping portion defined by an inward-facing surface. Ancillary equipment for fitting the clip is also disclosed. The clip is characterized in that the side members converge at an angle of less than 20.degree. and their outer surfaces have jagged portions which prevent withdrawal.
