In brief: Mitral Valve
The mitral keeps oxygenated blood flowing in one direction from the left atrium to the left ventricle.

In brief: Mitral valve
The mitral valve is between the left atrium (la) and the left ventricle (lv).
So blood with new oxygen returns from lungs into la then it passes thru the mitral valve into (lv) which pumps it to the body. Mitral stenosis is when the mitral valve doesn't open all the way. This makes filling of the heart difficult. The blood backs up causing the (la) to dilate and the lungs to get sick too.
