Objectives. We present a case report of a patient with complete lead wire fracture with approximately 3‐mm separation of the wire fragments that had three electrode impedance measurements and therapy impedance measurement that would be consistent with an intact wire. Materials and Methods. Retrospective chart review. Results. The patient experienced abrupt worsening of gait freezing while tremor control remained stable. Despite normal therapeutic impedance measurement, clinical suspicion for a… Expand
