Hi, I am translating this medical report into English and I am very stuck on the meaning of this underlined part. It is from a report on a 'Endoscopia Digestiva Alta' and is under the sub-heading 'Estomago':

Com o aparelho em retrovisao nao se visualizou insuficiencia do anel diafragmático.

    Technical terms aside, it means that, after the endoscope passed through the esophageal hiatus (that's where the esophagus goes through the diaphragm), the hiatus closed (sphinctered?) well around the endoscope, leaving no (visible/discernible) gap.
