Abstract: For certain kinds of $ 3$-manifolds, the question whether such a manifold can be obtained by nontrivial Dehn surgery on a knot in $ {S^3}$ is reduced to the corresponding question for hyperbolic knots. Examples are, whether one can obtain $ {S^3}$, a fake $ {S^3}$, a fake $ {S^3}$ with nonzero Rohlin invariant, $ {S^1} \times {S^2}$, a fake $ {S^1} \times {S^2}, {S^1} \times {S^2} \char93 M$ with $ M$ nonsimply-connected, or a fake lens space.
