Skin burns from radio frequency (RF) current remain an important clinical consideration. The classical studies on the kinetics of skin burns in the 1940s and 1950s [1–4] continue to be the most often cited and utilized framework for their prediction and analysis. The objective of this study was to apply numerical models to more thoroughly analyze previously-described experimental skin burns created by RF current under disk electrodes .
