English translation:osteotendinous reflexes
Explanation:
The R. is for reflexes. I happen to have been working on something similar recently. By the way, for "vivos" the word I often found used in English texts was "brisk."

"Osteotendinous reflexes a bit more brisk on the left side."

Stretch reflexes[edit]
The stretch reflexes (often called deep tendon reflexes, though not to be confused with Golgi tendon reflexes) provide information on the integrity of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. Generally, decreased reflexes indicate a peripheral problem, and lively or exaggerated reflexes a central one.

There are only some 20+ examples of "osteotendinous reflexes". Probably all just calques from Spanish.
