# A Note on Finite Dehn Fillings

Let $M$ be a compact, connected, orientable 3-manifold whose boundary is a torus and whose interior admits a complete hyperbolic metric of finite volume. In this paper we show that if the minimal Culler-Shalen norm of a non-zero class in $H_1(\partial M)$ is larger than $8$, then the finite surgery conjecture holds for $M$. This means that there are at most $5$ Dehn fillings of $M$ which can yield manifolds having cyclic or finite fundamental groups and the distance between any slopes yielding such manifolds is at most $3$.
