In brief: See below

The highest risk of restenosis is during the first month after stent placement.
The risk of restenosis of drug eluting stents is about 10% vs bare metal stents of about 30%. After one year restenosis is much less common. Risk factors for restenosis include diabetes, small vessels stented, long lesions stented and multiple stents placed.
