Twiddler's Syndrome is a rare condition in which patients subconsciously or purposefully manipulate their pacemaker, causing the leads to dislodge and the device to fail. Disturbances in the conduction of the pacemaker, depending on where the leads moved within the body, could affect the diaphragm, pectoral muscles, or brachial plexus, and could lead to sudden cardiac arrest. Twidder's Syndrome can also cause the failure of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) devices. Twiddler's Syndrome can be treated surgically be reattaching the leads of the device and suturing the device into a smaller pocket within the body.
