Abstract: In this paper, we study complete self-shrinkers in Euclidean space and prove that an $ n$-dimensional complete self-shrinker with polynomial volume growth in Euclidean space $ \mathbb{R}^{n+1}$ is isometric to either $ \mathbb{R}^{n}$, $ S^{n}(\sqrt {n})$, or $ \mathbb{R}^{n-m}\times S^m (\sqrt {m})$, $ 1\leq m\leq n-1$, if the squared norm $ S$ of the second fundamental form is constant and satisfies $ S<\frac {10}{7}$.
