In brief: Nothing - same
The mitral valve or left atrio-ventricular valve is a bicuspid valve.
The latter simply means a valve with two leaflets. That is the normal state. A tricuspid valve (3 leaflets) is normally the morphology of the right atrio-ventricular and aortic valves.

The mitral valve is a bicuspid valve.
This means there are 2 leaflets for both the mitral and bicuspid valve.
