amniotic bands?

So I went to the doctor today and had an ultrasound and she had referred me to a high risk doctor because of an amniotic band? Im not sure what this means the doctor wasn't to concerned and said it was just a precaution but from what research ive found its very rare and can be serious..... does anyone have any information?

There is a website called amnioticbandsyndrome.com it was started by a mom that went through it a few years ago, it has her story and others as well. I also read they can do surgery while baby is inutero to prevent further damage. But i have no experience with this personally.
