Can you give me a details on Amniotic Band syndrome ?

Hi doctors, I have some questions about amniotic band syndrome . I had a 3D ultrasound with a Periontologist at 20 wks and 3 days because I was diagnosed with Amniotic band syndrome. Everything is fine at this point, baby is intact but amniotic band is sitting near umbilical cord. Peri said now there is less chance of any harm to baby because there is no STICKINESS in the band now. If there was any harm to baby it would have been till now. What is that
