In brief: Mitral location

Calling it a bicuspid mitral valve is redundant.
The mitral valve has two (bi) leaflets and was named for its appearance similar to a bishop's miter. It is located between the left atrium and ventricle and its function is to prevent blood from flowing back into the left atrium when the left ventricle contracts and pumps its content into the aorta.
