I don't know if anyone has tried it but my gut reaction says that twisting of the filament would be a huge issue.

People that tried this confirmed this a few years ago.

The BfB Touch and Rapman printers have(had?) wormgear extruders. They have good grip on the filament, but I thik I have read that they are not good with retractions, and "eat" filament and leaves a lot of dust.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
