Missing parts

A missing larynx would prevent a person from making voiced sounds but
would leave the person otherwise unimpaired, right?

Now, for all the anatomy wizards here, what would happen if a person was
missing a laryngeal ligament (one of two ligaments that vibrate for
voiced sounds)? Would they be unable to voice sounds?

ObConlang: perhaps someone would make a language with no voiced sounds at
all, either for people with damaged larynxes (yes, there are sign
languages already, but why not spam the world with more languages?) or
for a conpeople with no larynxes or a cultural blind spot in the voicing
