The problem is probably something -- and insect or disease --
attacking old stems. This plant is naturally a bush and is not
programmed to have long-lived trunks. As wood gets older it becomes
more susceptible to such attacks. Cutting back old wood next spring
and letting younger wood replace older stems often solves the problem.
