There are two types of problems assciated with non-closure of the abdominal wall. Gastroschisis (where the bowel contents are not covered by a membrane) and omphalocele (where it is covered by a membrane). There are many different degrees of both these conditions. My advice would be to discuss it in detail with the doctor who did the sonar and request to discuss the best future course with the obstetrician, the neonatologist and the paediatric surgeon present. You may look under the terms mentioned on the internet, but getting information that is not related to your child may be unnecessarily disturbing.
