The logic behind this idea was purely mechanical; arytenoid cartilages which were shifted medially due to the laryngectomy were contacting more medially than normal and thus preventing the neoglottis to close appropriately.
As a result, unilateral arytenoid resection allowed complete medialization of the remaining arytenoid, which enables the sphincter function of the neoglottis.
