The humoral socket was a shallow socket on the scapula that the ball of the humerus fitted into.

In 2371, when Miles O'Brien tore his rotator cuff while playing darts, Doctor Bashir had to replace his entire humoral socket instead of simply popping it back into place. (DS9: "Shakaar")

While the script [1] spells it "humoral", it should correcly be "humeral", as in relating to the humerus.
