Yes, many have, but there is always more risk with doing more reps under load, as fatigue sets in. Everyone is different, and you might do fine with high reps, But I cannot. Same with others that have an injury history.
If you’re going to do that, make sure you have form locked in, and once it starts to be less than pristine, then I’d lower the reps and keep quality over quantity.
But again, high reps are not something I suggest for the strength athlete. Save this for your assistance work.

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL.
Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
