As per Hakan et al (2020): "The suture technique used for pharyngeal mucosal closure, preoperative albumin level <3.5 g/dL, preoperative hemoglobin levels<12.5 g/dL, and previous radiotherapy to the head and neck are risk factors for PCF development. Modified continuous Connell suture is a good option for pharyngeal closure"
