In brief: Normal intestine
The ileum is the last part of the small intestine (after duodenum and jejunum).
Terminal means last part. So, the ending of the ileum (and the ending of the small intestine) is the terminal ileum. Thus, the phrase you refer to means the end of the small intestine was normal.
