I am sorry your question is confusing and I am not sure of the procedure that was performed.
Generally heart attacks are treated using coronary angioplasty (stents) or by bypass surgery.
The risk of future adverse events depends on the risk factor profile of the person like age, blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, smoking history, family history etc.
I would recommend a follow up consultation with a cardiologist to discuss effective mitigation of future cardiovascular risk for your dad.
