Sometimes, the stent may get blocked...
Dissection / progression of disease in native vessel / resistance to anti-platelet agents and so on are responsible...especially common in Diabetic.
He may need to repeat the procedure / go for bypass...
Discuss with your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
