In brief: Abnormal ending

Atresia means abnormal ending and can occur with any part of the GI tract.
Ampullary portion is usually refers to the opening from the bile duct to the small intestine or less likely opening from pacreatic duct to small intestine. So abnormal ending or closed ending of either the bile duct or pancreatic duct.
