Abstract: For a $ 3$-manifold $ M(L)$ obtained by an integral Dehn surgery along an $ n$-bridge link $ L$ with $ n$-components we define a concept of planar Heegaard diagrams of $ M(L)$ using a link diagram of $ L$. Then by using Homma-Ochiai-Takahashi's theorem and a planar Heegaard diagram of $ M(L)$ we will completely determine if $ M(L)$ is the standard $ 3$-sphere in the case when $ L$ is a $ 2$-bridge link with $ 2$-components.
